Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a punishment.[1]
Aristophanes in Wealth [writes]: "what then shall I set down for you in the indictment as a penalty, if you should be convicted?" For sometimes they used to impose a punishment on those convicted or levy a fine or some such thing.[2]
And elsewhere: "a penalty of an impeachment having a monetary valuation [...]."[3]
"Having set valuations on the properties, in accordance with their capacity in each case, he introduced a most just form of government."[4]
Greek Original:
Τίμημα: ζημία. Ἀριστοφάνης Πλούτῳ: τί δῆτά σοι τίμημ' ἐπιγράψω τῇ δίκῃ, ἐὰν ἁλῷς; ἐπέβαλλον γὰρ ζημίαν ἐνίοτε τοῖς ἁλοῦσιν ἢ χρήματα καταθέσθαι ἤ τι τοιοῦτον. καὶ αὖθις: τίμημα τῆς εἰσαγγελίας ἐχούσης χρηματικόν. ταῖς οὐσίαις ἑκάστου τιμήματα πρὸς λόγον τῆς δυνάμεως ἐπιθεὶς δικαιότατον πολίτευμα εἰσηγήσατο.
For headword see also tau 607 (and n. 1 below). For its definition, ζημία , see generally zeta 69.
[1] Adler reports that ms V (Vossianus Fol. 2) supplies, after 'a penalty', the phrase καὶ ἡ καταδίκη ('and condemnation/damages'). This has evidently strayed in from tau 607, q.v.
[2] Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 480-481 (Chremylos speaking to, and about, Penia), with material from the scholia there.
[3] Dionysius of Halicarnassus, abbreviated from the end of epsiloniota 222, q.v.
[4] See the note at tau 608, where this passage (lacking here in ms F, Adler reports) reappears.
