[Bebaiosis] is the name of a lawsuit [in Athens], in which litigants were those who had bought something.
Greek Original:
*bebaiw/sews: di/khs e)sti\n o)/noma, h(\n dika/zontes oi( w)nhsa/menoi/ ti.
Harpokration s.v., which lies behind the present entry, is more explicit: such a suit is brought if one party disputes the purchase and the other refuses to confirm it by warranty, and also if disputes have arisen after a deposit has been proffered and accepted.
The headword is actually in the genitive case, presupposing (as was common in Athenian legal terminology) the noun di/kh.
