Prothesmia

προθεσμία). The term in which actions and prosecutions could be brought in Athens. The προθεσμίας νόμος was a sort of statute of limitations, the time for bringing action for debt or for damages on account of injuries being apparently five years, but there were no doubt different periods assigned in the case of different actions.
