Headword: *)epi\ *palladi/w|
Adler number: epsilon,2505
Translated headword: at Palladion, at Palladium
Vetting Status: high
A lawcourt at Athens, where the Ephetai used to judge cases of involuntary homicide. For when Argives were sailing from Ilion and put in at Phaleron, the Athenians failed to recognize them and killed them. Later, once Akamas had discovered [this] and the Palladion had been found, they set up a lawcourt there in accordance with an oracle, as Phanodemos [relates].[1] Kleitodemos, however, says that after Agamemnon had been brought to Athens with the Palladion, Demophon stole the Palladion and killed many of the pursuers; and Agamemnon was displeased, and promised a judgement from fifty Athenians and fifty Argives, whom he called Ephetai because of the fact that making the judgement was entrusted [e)feqh=nai], to both groups.[2]

A modified and augmented version of the equivalent entry in Harpokration s.v., commenting on the occurrence of the headword phrase in Demosthenes 23.71 (and citing ?Aristotle, Athenaion Politeia 57.3). See also e.g. Pausanias 1.28.9.
