Outgroup Favoritism

Aeschylus, Suppliants 401 (tr. Herbert Weir Smyth):
You honored aliens and brought ruin upon your own land.

ἐπήλυδας τιμῶν ἀπώλεσας πόλιν.
Alan H. Sommerstein ad loc.:
Pelasgus' detractors are imagined as pointedly contrasting his solicitude for foreigners with his neglect of the interests of the Argives themselves.
