· eisangelia ·

eisangelia, pl. eisangeliai · Lit. “public announcement, laying of information”: a form of public indictment broadly corresponding to impeachment in the USA. It was available for use against any public official during or after his term of office (he would normally be suspended from office for the duration of the trial) or against any political leader who had made a public proposal. It seems that the case could be brought either directly to the ekklesia or else to the boule, and that the final hearing would take place either before the ekklesia or (more commonly, and in every known case after 360 B.C.) before a dikasterion .

Greek: εἰσαγγελία, εἰσαγγελίαι .
