Headword: *)epikaloume/nwn
Adler number: epsilon,2350
Translated headword: being accused, being charged
Vetting Status: high
Meaning being prosecuted. "The life[-style] of those being accused usually makes some of the accusations implausible."[1]
Greek Original:
*)epikaloume/nwn: a)nti\ tou= kathgoroume/nwn. e)ni/as tw=n kathgoriw=n ei)/wqen a)pi/stous poiei=n o( tw=n e)pikaloume/nwn bi/os.
The headword is present middle-passive participle of the verb e)pikale/w (cf. epsilon 2349, epsilon 2351), genitive plural. It is perhaps extracted from the quotation given here, though there are numerous other possibilities (including two in Thucydides which generated scholiastic synonyms).
[1] Adler tentatively attributed this quotation to Damascius, Life of Isidore: now fr. 293 Zintzen, 119.I Athanassiadi.
