[Meaning] in the house.[1]
And [there is] a proverb:[2] "[keep] Milesian ways at home". In reference to those displaying finery in inappropriate circumstances; for once, Aristagoras of Miletus went to Sparta to ask for help for the Ionians, whom the Persians were fighting in a war. He made a speech wearing expensive clothing and the rest of his Ionian finery; so one of the Ephors said to him "[keep] Milesian ways at home".
