Headword: Αἰκίας
Adler number: alphaiota,169
Translated headword: assault, battery
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
It is a kind of private lawsuit [sc. in classical Athens] which could be brought as the result of [suffering] blows. Its punishment was not defined in the laws; rather, the plaintiff specified in writing what punishment he thought the crime deserved, and the jurors adjudicated [sc. between that and the proposal of the defendant].
Greek Original:
Αἰκίας: εἶδος δίκης ἐστὶν ἰδιωτικῆς ἐπὶ πληγαῖς λαγχανομένης, ἧς τὸ τίμημα ἐν τοῖς νόμοις οὐκ ἔστιν ὡρισμένον, ἀλλ' ὁ μὲν κατήγορος τίμημα ἐπιγράφεται ὁπόσου δοκεῖ ἄξιον εἶναι τὸ ἀδίκημα, οἱ δὲ δικασταὶ ἐπικρίνουσιν.
Notes:
From Harpokration s.v., precisely followed; and cf. in part Anecdota Oxoniensia 2.488.26.
The headword is genitive case, as is customary in such entries.
cf. generally alphaiota 167, alphaiota 168 (and alphaiota 170).
