Headword: Ἐξομόσασθαι
Adler number: epsilon,1797
Translated headword: to deny on oath
Vetting Status: high
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.
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
