Hyperides [uses this] in the sense of to take a pledge[1], but Demosthenes in the [speech] On the Tax-Exemptions in the sense of to approve and ratify a law[2]. However, in the [speech] Against Stephanos he says "having had placed laws private to himself", instead of "having placed".[3]
Greek Original:
Θέσθαι: ἀντὶ μὲν τοῦ ὑποθήκην λαβεῖν Ὑπερίδης, ἀντὶ δὲ τοῦ προέσθαι καὶ κυρῶσαι μόνον Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ περὶ τῶν ἀτελειῶν. ἐν μέντοι τῷ κατὰ Στεφάνου φησίν: ἑαυτῷ νόμους ἰδίως θέμενον. ἀντὶ τοῦ θέντα.
From Harpokration (and Photius) s.v.
[1] Hyperides fr. 169 Jensen.
[2] Demosthenes 20.55. (With law(s) as the subject there, the textual error in the present passage -- but not already in Harpok. -- is clear: read νόμον , "a law", for μόνον , "only".)
