Properly [this is] a lawsuit, brought in [sc. to court] by the prytaneis,[1] concerning communal and public crimes[2] about which the laws say nothing explicit but do allow for judgements to be made. And this is, in effect, the [topic] of unwritten crimes as practised in the sophists' discourses.
Greek Original:
Εἰσαγγελία: κυρίως ἡ περὶ κοινῶν καὶ δημοσίων ἀδικημάτων εἰσαγομένη δίκη ὑπὸ τῶν πρυτάνεων, περὶ ὧν διαρρήδην μὲν οὐδὲν λέγουσιν οἱ νόμοι, συγχωροῦσι δὲ κρίσεις γενέσθαι. καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν, οἷον τὸ ἐν ταῖς τῶν σοφιστῶν διατριβαῖς μελετώμενον τὸ τῶν ἀγράφων ἀδικημάτων.
