Headword: Ἐπιτρέπειν τοῖς οἰκείοις
Adler number: epsilon,2724
Translated headword: to entrust [the arbitration of a dispute] to one's friends
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Demosthenes [sc. uses the phrase] to mean choosing them as jurors,[1] whereas Lysias said "[he] entrusted to men," meaning [he] appointed conciliators.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπιτρέπειν τοῖς οἰκείοις: Δημοσθένης ἀντὶ τοῦ δικαστὰς αὐτοὺς αἱρεῖσθαι, Λυσίας δὲ ἐπέτρεψεν ἀνδράσιν εἶπεν, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπιτρόπους κατέστησεν.
Notes:
Abridged from Harpokration s.v. ἐπιτρέπειν (sic: i.e. shorter than the Suda's headword phrase, which comes from Demosthenes). Besides Demosthenes and Lysias, below, Harpok. cites Menander's play Epitrepontes.
[1] Demosthenes 27.1, with "arbitrators", διαιτηταί , instead of "jurors", δικασταί . (The error postdates Harpok.)
[2] Lysias fr. 63 Sauppe (now 70 Carey OCT).
