Summary/Abstract: There were circumstances under which it was permissible to kill another human being in the ancient Athenian democracy. Moreover, the killing itself was governed by a number of statutes. As citations to, and exegesis of, the applicable statutes had a role of means of evidence in the Athenian litigation; the speeches of the Attic orators contained numerous citations of individual statutes. As a result, some of these statutes survived until today as fractions of the preserved oratorical pieces – such as the Speech against Eratosthenes, coming under a name of Lysias.
