Eubu'lides

Εὐβουλίδης).

1. An Athenian, who, having lost a cause, in which he was prosecutor, through the evidence given by a man named Euxitheus, revenged himself on the latter by getting a verdict passed in a very irregular manner by the members of his deme, that he was not an Athenian citizen. Euxitheus appealed to the dicasts of the Heliaea (see Dict. of Ant. s. v. Appellatio, Greek), and succeeded in establishing his citizenship. A speech composed in his defence has come down to us among those of Demosthenes, but is, by some critics, perhaps without sufficient reason, attributed to Lysias. (Dem. c. Eubulid. 100.5.)
