Headword: *)amfisbhtei=n
Adler number: alpha,1764
Translated headword: to claim
Vetting Status: high
[To claim] and to counter-claim. Those involved in litigation [about] the estate[1] are said to claim or to counter-claim, with one side maintaining that the estate is [not][2] a matter for litigation, as there is a son of the deceased either by descent or by adoption, while the other side say that because the deceased died childless they have a better right to the estate, being either relatives or named as heirs in a will. That is how Demosthenes and Hyperides elucidated counter-claiming.[3]
