Headword: *parakatabolh/
Adler number: pi,353
Translated headword: court-deposit
Vetting Status: high
[Court-deposit] and [sc. also attested is the related verb] to submit a court-deposit. Those in dispute with the city [sc. of Athens] over certain confiscated monies and those prosecuting private citizens about estates or heiresses laid down a sum of money, and if they lost the lawsuit they had to lose the money. Accordingly, in disputes with the public [treasury] it is clear that the deposit was the fifth part of the sum at issue. However, Demosthenes in the special-plea [speech] Against Pantainetos says, about some private suit, "and after this he again summoned me in the suit, as soon as he had retrieved the deposits".[1]
