Headword: *dikaiw/mata
Adler number: delta,1081
Translated headword: acts of justice, things done as of right

[Meaning] praiseworthy starting-points.[1] "For if it is we who prevail, you will be entitled to demand great things from me as of right, because you have shared with us the greatest risks."[2]
Greek Original:
*dikaiw/mata: eu)lo/gous a)forma/s. e)a/n te ga\r nikw=men h(mei=s, e(/ceis pro\s e)me\ dikaiw/mata mega/la, dio/ti kekoinw/nhkas h(mi=n tw=n megi/stwn kindu/nwn.
For this headword cf. generally delta 1080, delta 1082. Here, as the gloss shows, it is accusative plural, evidently extracted from somewhere (possibly, though not demonstrably, the quotation which follows here).
[1] Likewise the gloss on a passage of Polybius in delta 1065.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. (For the use of pro/s with the accusative in this sense after dikaiw/mata cf. Thucydides 1.41.1, quoted by Dionysius of Halicarnassus, On the Idioms of Thucydides 5.4.)
