Headword: Ἐξομόσασθαι
Adler number: epsilon,1797
Translated headword: to deny on oath
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Those who promised to bear witness for certain people in a lawcourt, if afterwards they might not wish to bear witness against them, used to swear that they knew nothing. And this is 'to deny on oath'.
Greek Original:
Ἐξομόσασθαι: οἱ μαρτυρήσειν τισὶν ἐν δικαστηρίῳ ὑπισχνούμενοι, εἰ μετὰ ταῦτα μὴ βούλοιντο καταμαρτυρεῖν, ὤμνυον μηδὲν ἐπίστασθαι. καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν ἐξομόσασθαι.
Notes:
Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is aorist infinitive of ἐξόμνυμι . If it is quoted from somewhere (rather than used paradigmatically), likely sources are Demosthenes 19.124 and Lycurgus, Against Leocrates 20.
cf. epsilon 1792, epsilon 1798, epsilon 1840, epsilon 1841.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; law; religion; rhetoric
