Headword: *)apolaxei=n
Adler number: alpha,3378
Translated headword: to allocate
Vetting Status: high
The [verb that means] to distribute inheritances and other common grants to certain people and to take [them] away. But dialaxei=n is what the orators say for distributing. Antiphon [writes]: "whenever men might wish to share out money.[1]
*)apolaxei=n [sc. can be used] in place of dialaxei=n.[2] Thus Lysias and Aristophanes and Antiphon [use it].[3]
Greek Original:

[1] Antiphon fr. 65 Sauppe.
[2] But see next note.
[3] Lysias fr. 214 Sauppe (now 266 Carey OCT); Aristophanes fr. 494 Kock (511 Kassel-Austin); Antiphon fr. 65 Sauppe (again). This tailpiece to the entry is from Harpokration s.v., where the initial statement is, rather, that a)polaxei=n can stand for uncompound laxei=n.
