Name of a particular public prosecution [sc. in classical Athens]. Not only does the term apply whenever someone attacks a decree or law by lodging an indictment for illegality [γραφή παρανόμων ] but also in the case of many other public crimes. The word is common in the orators.
Greek Original:
Γραφή: δημοσίου τινὸς ἐγκλήματος ὄνομα. οὐ μόνον δὲ ὅταν ψηφίσματος ἢ νόμου κατηγορῇ τις, παρανόμων γραφὴν ἀποφέρεσθαι καὶ γράφεσθαι λέγεται, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐπ' ἄλλοις πολλοῖς δημοσίοις ἀδικήμασι. πολλὴ δὲ ἡ χρῆσις τοῖς ῥήτορσιν.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., where Demosthenes 54.1 & 18 is cited.
