['He/she was laid out'] and 'they laid [someone] out'. The orators apply the word to the dead, when, before burial, they are lying at home with their relations present. Lysias in the [speech] In reply to Glaukon [writes]: "and of course Glaukon - or any other relative of Dikaiogenes - would not be in a position to say even this: that while he was laid out, they were embarrassed and ashamed to make him a topic of discussion, but once he had been carried away you either had some remembrance of the money or saw fit to adjudicate over the daughters".[1]
