Headword: Ἀγραφίου δίκη
Adler number: alpha,344
Translated headword: dike agraphiou, lawsuit about erasure
Vetting Status: high
When people owe [money] to the public treasury, as the result of a conviction, those in charge at the time about these matters write the debtors' names on notice-boards, appending how much the debt is [sc. in each case]. Whenever each one pays, the record is erased from the notice-board. So if someone is listed as owing money, but does not appear to have paid, and his name has been erased from the notice-board, any citizen who wishes may bring against him a lawsuit for erasure.
Greek Original:
Ἀγραφίου δίκη: τῶν ἐκ καταδίκης ὠφληκότων τῷ δημοσίῳ γράφουσι τὰ ὀνόματα ἐν σανίσιν οἱ κατὰ καιρὸν περὶ τούτων διοικοῦντες, προστιθέντες ἀνὰ πόσον ἐστὶ τὸ ὄφλημα. ὅταν δὲ ἀποδιδῷ ἕκαστος, ἐξαλείφεται τῆς σανίδος τὸ ἐπίγραμμα. ἐὰν οὖν τις ἀναγραφῇ μὲν ὠφληκέναι, δόξῃ δὲ μὴ ἀποδεδωκέναι, καὶ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐξηλειμμένον ᾖ ἐκ τῆς σανίδος, συγκεχώρηται τῷ βουλομένῳ τῶν ἀστῶν εἰσάγειν κατ' αὐτοῦ δίκην ἀγραφίου.
