Adler number: epsiloniota,220
Translated headword: eisangelia, impeachment
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] denunciation.[1] An eisangelia and a graphe differ. For an eisangelia comes about with reference to crimes which are major and public,[2] but a graphe with reference also/even to minor ones.[3] And properly [there is] a graphe with reference to those writing things which broke the law.[4]
Greek Original:
Εἰσαγγελία: δηλατορία. εἰσαγγελία δὲ καὶ γραφὴ διαφέρει. εἰσαγγελία μὲν γὰρ ἐπὶ τῶν μεγάλων καὶ δημοσίων ἀδικημάτων γίνεται, γραφὴ δὲ καὶ ἐπὶ μικρῶν. καὶ κυρίως γραφὴ ἐπὶ τῶν τὰ παράνομα γραφόντων.
See also epsiloniota 221 and especially (for authentic information and quality) epsiloniota 222.
[1] Here a late Greek noun generated from the Latin terms delator and delatio; cf. delta 397, delta 398.
[2] cf. epsiloniota 219.
[3] Not so, at least in classical Athenian law (the implicit subject here), where graphai too concerned alleged offences of public interest (see gamma 439, gamma 440).
[4] i.e. to block illegal decree-proposals; cf. again gamma 439 and gamma 440.
