§§ 22, 23. Pamphilus, in fact, the father of Plangon, died indebted to the treasury, and in a sum so large that the sale of his property did not realize it. Besides, had there been any surplus, it must have come to the sons, and not to the daughter. And they were not the men to let my father get possession of what belonged to them.

τοσούτου έδέησε Impersonally used: ‘so far was it from there being any surplus for his children when the property had been scheduled and publicly sold, that not even the whole of the debt has been discharged on his account.’ In Or. 37 § 49, it is personal, τοσούτου δεῖς ἐλέου τινὸς ἄξιος εἶναι ὤστε κ.τ.λ.—ἀπογραφείσης, after an inventory of it had been made, and a formal return of the goods or property. See Or. 34 § 7. A similar word is ἀπόφασις and ἀποφαίνειν. Or. 42 §§ 1, 9.

ἑκτέτεισται Cf. 39 § 15 ἐκτεισθῇ, 35 Arg. § 1 ἔκτεισιν, 37 § 46 ἀποτεῖσαι.]

ἐγγέγραπται ‘Stands in the register.’ Kennedy. Cf. 53 § 14.
