Headword: *)ecwmosi/a
Adler number: epsilon,1841
Translated headword: denial-on-oath, exomosia
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] request under oath, [made] because of a plausible reason. An exomosia [occurs] when someone, either on his own behalf or accused by another, claims that a lawsuit should not be taken to court -- adding the reason why the lawsuit [is] not admissible; if the plea appears cogent, he would be permitted to employ an exomosia, and in this way the lawsuit would be cancelled.[1]

See already under epsilon 1840. The present, two-part entry draws first on Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon (the verb cognate with the headword occurs in Laws 949A) and then on a lexicon of Athenian legal terminology.
[1] For this sense of the verb diagraphein cf. delta 533, delta 535, pi 978.
