Abstract: Some previous results of the author towards a classification of homogeneous metric continua are improved. The disjoint arcs property is fully revealed in this context. In particular, closed $n$-manifolds, $n=1,2$, are characterized as those homogeneous continua which do not have the disjoint arcs property.
