Ὀρφανισταί are those rearing the orphans. Or ὀρφανισταί , a magistracy at Athens which judged the affairs of orphans.[1] Or ὀρφανιστῶν , of those responsible for the care of orphans. "Under unloving orphan-guardians, what an evil [...]."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὀρφανιστῶν: ὀρφανισταί εἰσιν οἱ τοὺς ὀρφανοὺς τρέφοντες. ἢ ὀρφανισταί, ἀρχὴ Ἀθήνησι τὰ τῶν ὀρφανῶν κρίνουσα. ἢ ὀρφανιστῶν, τῶν τῆς ὀρφανίας ἐπιτρόπων. ὑπ' ὀρφανιστῶν μὴ φίλων, ὅσον κακόν.
