· (ho) boulomenos ·

(ho) boulomenos · Lit. “anyone who wishes.” Whereas prosecution in a dike could only be brought by the aggrieved party, in a graphe or other public case it could be brought by any qualified person (which normally meant any Athenian citizen who was not himself atimos).

Greek: βουλόμενος .
