Headword: *)agorai/an di/khn
Adler number: alpha,307
Translated headword: agora lawsuit, forensic lawsuit
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the (?)defense plea.
Greek Original:
*)agorai/an di/khn: th\n dikaiologi/an.
An opaque entry, and made the more so because it appears in other lexica in different forms. In Photius (alpha231 Theodoridis) the lemma itself is the adjective only, i.e. di/khn is lacking; the Synagoge (alpha82) has di/khn as the first part of the gloss. All that seems certain, therefore, is that a)gorai/an (accusative singular) is quoted from somewhere.
The glossing term dikaiologia can mean either a defense plea or a forensic speech of any kind: see LSJ s.v.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; economics; law; rhetoric
