Enepiskepsis
(102 words)

[German version]

(ἐνεπίσκηψις; Enepískēpsis). In Athens, when property was confiscated ( dḗmeusis ,  dēmióprata ) a third party was able to claim that a particular part of the assets belonged to him or was mortgaged to him. If he objected, by using the form of an enepiskepsis, there would be a  diadikasía between him and the person initiating the confiscation ( apographé ) in which it was determined if the state debtor ‘owed’ cession of the asset parts to the third party (Dem. Or. 49,45ff.; Hesperia 10, 1941, 14).
