Headword: *pragmatei/a
Adler number: pi,2191
Translated headword: affair, [legal] matter, grievance
Vetting Status: high
Not, as in common usage, [used] in reference to [sc. business] affairs -- and so used also by the orators in reference to those undertaking certain works -- but in reference to those attempting to contest grievances [sc. in court].[1] As Dinarchus in the [speech] Against Menaechmus [writes]: "for the enmities and grievances from communal matters establish causes of private differences."[2]

The headword, again at pi 2192, is a feminine noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular; see generally LSJ s.v. As Adler notes in her critical apparatus, Wentzel [below] attributed this passage to an early rhetorical lexicon consulted by the Suda's compilers (Adler, p. xvii; Wentzel, pp. 477-487). It is apparently the source of Bekker's fifth lexicon, the Lexeis rhetorikai (Bekker, pp. 195-318).
[1] Adler reports that ms G reads not u(po/ but e)pi/: laid down to the orators; also that ms A reads tinos (for their efforts in some disputations) and pra/gmati (applying in a grievance).
[2] Dinarchus fr. 87 Conomis. (For Dinarchus, c.360-c.290 BCE, see delta 333 and OCD(4) s.v.) Adler notes Bernhardy's realisation that the name of the defendant in this speech should more probably be Menesaikhmos/Menesaechmus, as in Lycurgus' speech of that name; cf. lambda 825, pi 2420 (end).
