Adler number: omicron,687
Translated headword: profane
Vetting Status: high
Hyperides in the [speech] Against Aristogeiton says: "and the monies, both sacred and profane".[1] And Isocrates [says]: "to the sacred and to the profane".[2] They are calling "profane" what is public. And Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Aristokrates teaches this clearly.[3] But Didymus maintains that hosios is said of two things, both what is sacred and what is private.[4]
Greek Original:
Ὅσιον: Ὑπερίδης ἐν τῷ πρὸς Ἀριστογείτονά φησι: καὶ τὰ χρήματα, τά τε ἱερὰ καὶ τὰ ὅσια. καὶ Ἰσοκράτης: τοῖς ἱεροῖς καὶ τοῖς ὁσίοις. τὰ δημόσια ὅσια λέγοντες. καὶ Δημοσθένης δὲ ἐν τῷ κατὰ Τιμοκράτους σαφῶς διδάσκει τοῦτο. Δίδυμος δέ φησι διχῶς λέγεσθαι τὸ ὅσιον, τό τε ἱερὸν καὶ τὸ ἰδιωτικόν.

[1] Hyperides fr. 32 Jensen.
[2] Isocrates 7.77.
[3] Demosthenes 24.120.
[4] Didymus p.316 Schmidt. The point being made is equally obscure in Harpok. One could consider supplementary emendation, on the lines of "[the opposite of] both etc.", but a larger polemical point may be at issue.
