for what its worth, orestes is the man. oresteia is the cycle of stories about him. if you must, it would be the house of orestes.

Plus the home was where the unwanted women were exiled. to sit doing unproductive and monotonous tasks.

Indeed. Charles, if you're going to be a blowhard name dropper, at least get your titles/facts right. Aeschylus wrote no such trilogy which could even remotely be translated as "The House of Atreus". (Although you are right that it is the subject matter of the cycle.) Did you use some kind of internet ancient greek translating web page to write your column?

Okay, I'm in a better mood now. You might like JP Vernant's Origin's of Greek Thought, if you haven't read it already.
