Abstract

THE TEXTS FROM HESIOD and the later Gortyn legislation have revealed a contrast between two types of juridical action, krinein and dikazein:
  • [a] formal contrast: in one case, the two parties swear on oath; in the other case, the judge too utters the ritual formula of the oath and imprecation;

  • [b] contrast in the way the sentence is arrived at: in one case through the mechanism of oaths; in the other by a decision of the judge who is not bound by the oaths of the parties.
