Headword: Οὐσίας δίκη
Adler number: omicron,963
Translated headword: dike ousias, property suit
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Those [sc. in classical Athens] litigating about lands or houses, against their possessors, used to bring a property suit as their second case; the first was enoikiou in the case of houses, karpou for lands; and a third [option], additionally, was ejectment.[1] And it was permitted to the defendants to control their possessions even if they lost the suit karpou or enoikiou and the second suit, the property suit, as well; but if they were convicted of ejectment they were no longer permitted control but had to surrender their possessions to their opponents.
Greek Original:
Οὐσίας δίκη: οἱ δικαζόμενοι περὶ χωρίων ἢ οἰκιῶν πρὸς τοὺς ἔχοντας, οὐσίας ἐδικάζοντο τὴν δευτέραν δίκην. ἡ δὲ προτέρα ἦν τῶν μὲν οἰκιῶν ἐνοικίου, τῶν δὲ χωρῶν καρποῦ, τρίτη δὲ ἐπὶ τούτων ἐξούλης. καὶ ἐξῆν τοῖς ἑλοῦσι κρατεῖν τῶν κτημάτων, καὶ τὴν δίκην τοῦ καρποῦ ἢ τοῦ ἐνοικίου, ἢ καὶ τὴν δευτέραν ἡττηθεῖεν τὴν τῆς οὐσίας: εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐξούλης ἁλοῖεν, οὐκέτι ἐξῆν κρατεῖν, ἀλλ' ἐξίστασθαι ἤδη τῶν κτημάτων ἔδει τοῖς καταδικασαμένοις.
