Headword: *bouleu/sews
Adler number: beta,429
Translated headword: conspiracy
Vetting Status: high
It is the name of a charge [sc. in Athenian law], attached to two sets of circumstances. One is when someone plots to bring about the death of somebody, irrespective of whether the target of the plot dies or not [1]; the other is when someone has been listed as a debtor to the public treasury and sues somebody for having listed him unjustly.[2] And Isaeus says that the first charge of the two is brought to court in the Palladion; likewise also Aristotle; but Dinarchus [says that it is] in the Areopagos.[3] Concerning the other charge Demosthenes has something to say in the first [speech] Against Aristogeiton.[4] Hyperides, however, applies the word "conspiracy" in a special way to traps and scheming aimed at making money.[5]
