It is a term used of a public prosecution [sc. in classical Athens], whenever someone reports someone for possessing public property which he has not bought; it also a term used of orphaned households. For when the trustees do not lease out the house of those in whose name they are acting, anyone who wishes denounces him to the archon, so that leasing can occur; and he also denounces him if the lease brings in less than the property is worth. Accordingly, for the first kind there is evidence to be found in both Dinarchus and Demosthenes,[1] while as regards the denunciation concerning orphaned households [the evidence is] in Lysias, In Reply to the Denunciation of the Orphaned Household.[2]
