Headword: Ἀπαγωγάς
Adler number: alpha,2869
Translated headword: carryings off, arrests
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] captures, incapacitations.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the singular] ἀπαγωγή ["proscription"], a written deposition given to the magistrate concerning the necessity to arrest a certain person.
"Then Licinius arrived on the pretext of a proscription".[2]
So[3] the ἀπαγωγή is a type of lawsuit; it is named from ἀπάγειν ["to carry off"]. Evil-doers used to be carried off to the Eleven.[4]
Greek Original:
Ἀπαγωγάς: αἰχμαλωσίας, ἀδυνατίας. καὶ Ἀπαγωγή, μήνυσις ἔγγραφος διδομένη τῷ ἄρχοντι περὶ τοῦ δεῖν ἀπαχθῆναι τὸν δεῖνα. ἐνταῦθα ὁ Λικίννιος κατὰ πρόφασιν ἀπαγωγῆς ἀφικόμενος. τὸ οὖν ἀπαγωγὴ δίκης ἐστὶν εἶδος: ὠνόμασται δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀπάγειν. ἀπήγοντο δὲ οἱ κακοῦργοι πρὸς τοὺς ια#.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is accusative plural, evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Demosthenes 20.156 or 25.78, though there are other possibilities).
[2] Philostorgius, Historia ecclesiastica V.2a, p.67.25-6 Bidez-Winkelmann. For this episode cf. alpha 4450.
[3] This apparently logical connection is a non sequitur, since the entry now shifts without warning to classical Athens (echoing, from now on, Harpokration s.v. ἄπαγε ; cf. already alpha 2861).
[4] For whom see epsilon 1156.
