Headword: *paragrafh/
Adler number: pi,320
Translated headword: paragraphe, special plea
Vetting Status: high
[The word] applies in the orators not only to the common and well-known [procedure][1] but in a special sense Isocrates said "paragraphe" when he meant "[begin] from the written mark".[2] And this is a way for him to say, "from where I wrote the mark". Hyperides in the [speech] Against Demosthenes says "not even within a paragraphe", meaning not even within a time defined and laid down -- in writing, that is.[3]
