Headword: Ἁλιμούσιος
Adler number: alpha,1231
Translated headword: Halimousian, Halimusian
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Halimous is a deme of [the Athenian tribe] Leontis. Agasikles is said to have bribed the Halimousians[1] and because of this, although a foreigner, was registered in the citizen body[2].
Greek Original:
Ἁλιμούσιος: Ἁλιμοῦς δῆμός ἐστι τῆς Λεοντίδος. λέγεται ὁ Ἀγασικλῆς τοῖς Ἁλιμουσίοις συνδικάσαι καὶ διὰ τοῦτο ξένος ὢν ἐγγραφῆναι τῇ πολιτείᾳ.
Notes:
[1] The transmitted text uses the verb συνδικάζειν (join in judging), but it should be emended, both here and in alpha 169 (and Harpokration s.v. Agasikles), to συνδεκάζειν , literally to bribe en masse (for which, as LSJ note, συνδικάζειν is a common error).
[2] This occurred at some time between 336 and 324 BC, and led to Agasikles being impeached. See generally M.H.Hansen, Eisangelia (Odense 1975) no.115; D.Whitehead, The Demes of Attica (Princeton 1986) 293,294.
