ANAUMACHIOU GRAPHE´ (ἀναυμαχίου γραφή) was an impeachment of the trierarch who had kept aloof from action while the rest of the fleet was engaged. In a cause of this kind, as in the kindred actions ἀστρατείας, δειλίας, λιποναυτίου, λιποταχίου, the strategi were naturally the presiding judges. The penalty was atimia without confiscation of goods, if we may trust Andocides (de Myst. § 74); whereas on conviction δειλίας or λιποταχίου, the property of the offender was confiscated (Lys. c. Alcib. 1.9). Caillemer (in Daremberg and Saglio s. v.) argues from analogy that the punishment of the offender must have been the same in both cases.
