ἄδεια). When any one in Athens who had not the full privileges of an Athenian citizen, such as a foreigner, a slave, etc., wished to accuse a person of any offence against the people, he was obliged to obtain first permission to do so, which permission was called ἄδεια. An Athenian citizen who had incurred ἀτιμία was also obliged to obtain ἄδεια before he could lay an information against any one. See Atimia.
