1 Disfranchisement could only follow upon condemnation if the plaintiff failed to obtain one-fifth of the votes and so became liable to pay ἐπωβελία,i.e., compensation to Athenogenes at the rate of one-sixth of the sum in question. On failure to pay this he would become liable to prosecution again （δίκη ἐξούλης） and if condemned would have to pay a fine to the state too. Finally as a state debtor he would be liable to loss of civic rights （ἀτιμία）. The payment of ἐπωβελία certainly obtained in mercantile, and some other cases, and probably in cases of damage also. See Andoc. 1.73; Dem. 21.44, Dem. 27.67, Dem. 28.21, Dem. 47.64; Aeschin. 1.163.
