CARPOU DIKE´ (καρποῦ δίκη), a civil action under the jurisdiction of the thesmothetae, might be instituted against a farmer for default in payment of rent (Meier, Att. Proc. p. 531). It was also adopted to enforce a judicial award when the unsuccessful litigant refused to surrender the land to his opponent (Hudtwalcker, p. 144; Meier, Att. Proc. p. 750), and might be used to determine the right to land (Harpocrat. s.v. and οὐσίας δίκη), as the judgment would determine whether the plaintiff could claim rent of the defendant.
