Habitually both laymen and rhetoricians make use of the name of chremata in application to coins of silver and gold, and they also assigned this expression to the whole property. "[...] that the killer is taint-free and dies and his chremata are sold."[1] The expression is also applied to a concrete reality [or: something implying some business] or to a person [or: character] or to a speech, as Antiphon [does];[2] and they also assign the expression to mercantile wares. Lysias applies [it] to the furnishing of gold.[3]

The headword, a neuter plural, is here in the genitive case, as in the opening sentence of the gloss; cf. chi 489.
[1] Tentatively attributed by Adler to Aelian. Perhaps, rather, a faulty echo of part of a law quoted in Andocides 1.95: to\n a)pokteinanta o(/sion ei)=nai kai\ ta\ xrh/mata e)/xein tou= a)poqano/ntos 'that the killer is taint-free and has the monies of the deceased'.
[2] Antiphon fr. 187 Sauppe [= Antiphon the Sophist fr. 117 DK].
[3] Lysias fr. 335 Sauppe, now 513 Carey OCT.
