Ute Schmidt-Berger correctly notes that the Orestes-Pylades relationship in the Iphigenia is the earliest example of a vivid representation of the Aristotelian idea that brotherly philia and companionship philia are closely related. 28 However, this is not because the play portrays companionship as more important than relationship by marriage, which in turn is more important than blood kinship. 29 Instead, the dramatic movement of the play from the companionship of Orestes and Pylades to their kinship helps to portray this companionship as a model for kinship philia that is especially appropriate for the descendants of Atreus, whose troubled kinship relationships have deprived them of such an example.
T' dyxLcrreia TU>V oXcoXoTtov: 173—74). Kreon's power to deny Polyneikes the obligations due to kin depends, ironically, on his kinship relationship with the young man. Moreover, Kreon's emphasis on this relationship at the beginning of his speech ensures that the audience will be aware of the sense of "kin" that Kreon excludes when he subsequently speaks of counting people as philoi or of making philoi (182-90).

Only in Sophokles' Oedipus at Kolonos are the primary suppliant and supplicated (Oidipous and Theseus) not related by blood. Even in this case, however, Theseus's sympathy for Oidipous is increased by the fact that the two men have had a common life as xenoi (562-68), and it is noteworthy that Antigone supplicates the Chorus (iKereuo^ev: 241), asking them to pity her as if she were kin (245-46).
