(ἀειφυγία; aeiphygía). Permanent banishment; in Athens archaic punishment for φόνος (phónos, homicide), τραῦμα (traûma, bodily harm) and τυραννίς (tyrannís), pronounced by the Areopagus as a ‘special court’ (not by the Heliaia in normal dikasteria). There was a family liability, so the living members of a house went into exile, the dead were torn from their graves and property was confiscated (Demosth. 21,43 on IG I3 104; 20,2. Plut. Sol. 12).
