Headword: Ἐδικαιώθησαν
Adler number: epsilon,238
Translated headword: they were justified, they were adjudged
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they were judged to be just.[1] But it also means the opposite, they were justly condemned. Dio in the fifteenth [book] of Roman Histories [writes]: "for because of both their very ancient repute and their long-standing friendship with the Romans they did not endure being judged; but the Campanians attempted to accuse Flaccus and the Syracusans Marcellus. They were justified in the Senate."[2] But often this [writer] uses the expression in the above-mentioned sense, as in the 16th [book]: "all deserve to die; however, I will not put all of you to death, but [only] a few, whom I have captured already, I will condemn, but the others I release."[3] And in many other passages likewise.
Greek Original:
Ἐδικαιώθησαν: δίκαιοι ἐκρίθησαν. σημαίνει δὲ καὶ τὸ ἐναντίον, κατεδικάσθησαν δικαίως. Δίων ἐν Ῥωμαϊκοῖς πεντεκαιδεκάτῳ: ἔκ τε γὰρ τῆς ἀπὸ τοῦ πάνυ ἀρχαίου ἀξιώσεως καὶ ἐκ τῆς παλαιᾶς πρὸς τοὺς Ῥωμαίους φιλίας οὐκ ἤνεγκαν δικαιωθέντες, ἀλλ' ἐπεχείρησαν καὶ οἱ Καμπανοὶ τοῦ Φλάκκου καὶ οἱ Συρακούσιοι τοῦ Μαρκέλλου κατηγορῆσαι, κατεδικαιώθησαν ἐν τῷ συνεδρίῳ. πολλαχοῦ δὲ οὗτος κέχρηται τῇ λέξει ταύτῃ ἐπὶ τοῦ εἰρημένου σημαινομένου, ὡς καὶ ἐν τῷ ι#2#: πάντες ἀποθανεῖν ἐστε ἄξιοι: οὐ μέντοι καὶ ἐγὼ πάντας ὑμᾶς θανατώσω, ἀλλ' ὀλίγους μέν, οὓς καὶ συνείληφα ἤδη, δικαιώσω, τοὺς δὲ ἄλλους ἀφίημι. καὶ ἀλλαχοῦ δὲ πολλαχοῦ ὁμοίως.

[1] The headword is aorist passive of δικαιόω , third person plural; cf. delta 1078, epsilon 237, epsilon 239.
[2] Cassius Dio 15.57.46a (phi 516 has a shorter extract). For 'the Campanians attempted to accuse Flaccus and the Syracusans Marcellus' cf. Livy 26.30.12: 'of the two cities captured this year [210 BCE], Capua has Fulvius as its defendant, Syracuse Marcellus'. The 'Fulvius' here is Q. Fulvius Flaccus (cos.237 and three more times), who had taken Capua in 211; and this 'Marcellus' is M. Claudius Marcellus (cos.222 and four more times), capturer of Syracuse in 212. Plutarch, Marcellus 23 describes the episode, two years later, when the Syracusans tried to bring charges against Marcellus for breaking the surrender-terms but the Senate exonerated him; and for both cases see at length Livy 26.29-34.
[3] Cassius Dio 16.57.47.
