Carpou Diké

καρποῦ δίκη). A civil action at Athens under the jurisdiction of the thesmothetae, 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, and might be used to determine the right to land, as the judgment would determine whether the plaintiff could claim rent of the defendant.
