Headword: *biai/wn
Adler number: beta,280
Translated headword: violent behavior
Vetting Status: high
It is the name of a [sc. Athenian] lawsuit brought against those doing anything by violence; he who has been convicted of it pays to the public treasury [a sum] equal to [what he pays] to the man who has secured the conviction. Demosthenes [in the speech] Against Meidias [mentions it].[1] There are also speeches [from suits] for violent behavior circulating amongst those of Lysias.[2] And it is clear that neither the word nor the lawsuit were applied[3] to the rape of virgins, but to other circumstances too.

On the genitive case of the headword see the note at beta 216; and for plural, as here, cf. kappa 170.
The entry derives from the one in Harpokration s.v.
[1] Demosthenes 21.44 (for acting violently, rather than this procedure as such: web address 1).
[2] Lysias fr. 241 Sauppe (not in Carey OCT).
[3] "Restricted", rather: Harpokration s.v. has "applied only".
