Magnets

A magnet is defined as any material capable of attracting iron and producing a magnetic field outside itself. Magnets are essential for the generation of electric power and are used in motors, generators, information storage, ATM cards, TVs, and numerous other applications. By the end of the 19th century, all known elements and many compounds had been tested for magnetism, and all were found to have some magnetic property.

The word Ἐπίσκηψις which translated into English language means 'denunciation' though used in the context of Plato's imaginary polis Magnesia, is an item of vocabulary well-attested in classical Athenian law and litigation.
Ἐπίσκηψις a lawsuit brought against those who have testified falsely.

The word Ἀλκίφρων which translated into English language means 'Alkiphron' was used a as name of a person.
Ἀλκίφρων a Magnesian, of Magnesia-on-Meander. [I wish here to cite Richard Quest from CNN, "meander no more".]

The word Ἑκμήνου which translated into English language means 'six-month'. The glossing in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon suggest that it is extracted from Plato, Laws, as used in the context of Magnesia's law on restitution for being sold a sick slave. [Here I wish to ask readers do they realize the status of citizenship and conditions governing law of citizens/commerce/bargain/caveat emptor in ancient Athens?]
Ἑκμήνου s/he deprived someone of the approaching six-month of something.

The word Ἐπωβελία which translated into English language means 'obol-fine'. It was used by Plato in Laws to tell that anyone in Magnesia who takes delivery of a piece of work from a craftsman but fails to pay him for it within a year must pay one obol per drachma for every month in arrears. [Here I wish to ask readers do they believe in delivery without payment in ancient Greece, really?]

Calonice in a dialogue with Lysistrata [Aristophanes, Lysistrata] said: Have no mercy on the eels.


Allegedly the Boeotian eels were highly esteemed delicacies in Athens.

I wonder do they in Greece still have the eels? Smoked, preferably, please.
