Headword: *)antigrafeu/s
Adler number: alpha,2661
Translated headword: antigrapheus, copy-clerk
Vetting Status: high
Similar to "clerk".[1] The man in charge of those paying certain sums of money to the city, who therefore "copies" them. So Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Androtion, but also Aeschines in the Against Ktesiphon.[2] There were two: one of the financial administration, the other of the council. In a special sense [what occurs] in adjudications of estates, whenever someone maintains that he, because the deceased was childless, should have the estate [is a counter-plea].[3] In a general sense [so are] the documents of the litigants in public lawsuits. Those of the plaintiff and of the defendant alike are called [an] a)ntigrafh/. And so are the statements of witnesses. However, Plato in the Apology of Socrates calls a)ntwmosi/a and a)ntigrafh/ the same thing.[4]
