ALOG´IOU DIKE´ (ἀλογίου δίκη), an action which might be brought before the logistae (λογισταὶ) at Athens, against all persons who neglected to pass their accounts when their term of office expired. The punishment was atimia. Though the action was a public one, the grammarians agree in calling it δίκη, not λραφή: and this is preferred by Westermann ap. Pauly, ed. 2. (Suidas; Hesych.; Etym. M. s. v.; Pollux, 8.54; Lex. Rhet. p. 664, ed. Pors.)
