Common use of κατηγορία

Postby Eugene » Sat May 14, 2011 10:51 pm

Hello everybody!

I'm writing a paper about Aristotle categories. I want to trace daily use of this word. It's common place that κατηγορία was used for accusation at court. LJS gives some nice examples from classic authors. But i'm looking for epigraphic inscriptions like: town made an accusation for this and this.

Also was στέρησις (theft, burglary) matter of κατηγορία. Could someone be accused because of στέρησις or it's just word from different meaning fields?
