). This action was maintainable against such Athenian citizens
as had administered to the unnatural lusts of another for pay (Aeschin.
§ § 29, 51, 72, 87; Platner,
Proc. u. Klagen,
ii. p. 221); but only if after such
degradation they ventured to exercise their political franchise, e. g. speak
in the public assembly or bear office in the state, etc. (Aeschin. c.
§ 19 ff., 195; Pollux, 8.43; cf. Dem. c.
i. p. 1125.79). The same action was maintainable against
who hired out a youth under age
(not against the youth himself), and against the person who hired another,
whether under age or not, for such purposes (such an action was perhaps
called εἰς ἑταίρησιν μισθώσεως,
Aeschin. c. Tim.
§ 13, κατ᾽
αὐτοῦ μὲν τοῦ παιδὸς οὐκ ἐᾷ
) γραφὰς ἑταιρήσεως εἶναι,
κατὰ δὲ τοῦ μισθώσαντος καὶ τοῦ μισθωσαμένου
actions belonged to the jurisdiction of the thesmothetae. All three classes
of offenders were capitally punished (Aeschin. c. Tim.
§ § 13, 72, 87, 90). Heffter (Ath.
p. 172) extended this action also to the προαγωγοί
: yet there was a special γραφὴ προαγωγείας
§ § 14, 184). (Att. Process,
ed. Lipsius, p. 411 f.)
