Headword: *pompei/a
Adler number: pi,2022
Translated headword: procession
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] abuse. And the forensic [orators] use the word.[1] The term pompeia is also applied to the equipment prepared for the processions, as the same orator says in the [speech] Against Androtion.[1] Philochorus says that formerly the Athenians used to use pompeia made out of the property of the 30 [Tyrants]. But latterly Androtion supplied other ones.[2]

[1] Demosthenes 22.48 (web address 1). He is 'the same orator' because in Harpokration s.v., abridged by Photius, he has already been cited (18.11, which spells out more fully what is merely implicit here, the link between certain cult processions and ritual abuse). For the first half of Harpok. s.v., see the next entry here, pi 2023.
[2] Philochorus FGrH 328 F181; cf. (Androtion) FGrH 324 T5.
