Headword: *para/buston
Adler number: pi,302
Translated headword: parabyston
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This was the name of one of the lawcourts in Athens, where the Eleven tried cases. A particular couch in bridal apartments used to be called a parabystos; Hyperides mentions one in the [speech] Against Patrokles.[1] [So the lawcourt] seems to be described metaphorically, from the stuffings, parabysmata - that is fillings - in cargoes.

Abridged from Harpokration s.v., glossing in the first instance Antiphon fr. 43 Sauppe and going on to cite, besides Hyperides (below), Timocles fr. 26 Kock (28 K-A).
