ἔνδειξις). A term in Athenian jurisprudence, denoting a prosecution in notorious cases—as, for instance, against the Prytanes, if they refused to put a question to the vote in the great assembly. It was especially employed against persons who, although lying under atimia, presumed to claim a share in civic rights, as (particularly) by instituting prosecutions, or appearing, speaking, and voting in the assembly. See Apagogé.
