Κρίμα (on the accent, see Proleg. p. 46) = ";legal decision"; is found in P Petr III. 26.2 (iii/B.C.) το ]ὺς τοπάρχ [ους ] κρίματα κα ̣θήκει εἰς τοὺς φόρους, ";it is (not) the duty of the Toparchs to give decisions regarding the taxes"; (Edd.), ib. 36 (a) verso.20 (iii/B.C.) δ ̣ε ̣ήσει συντελεῖσθαι τὰ κατὰ το ̣, [κρίμα ] ἐ ̣ὰ ̣ν ̣ δέη ̣ι ̣ κρίμα, ";(the dioiketes) shall require the legal decision to be carried out, if such a decision be necessary"; (Edd.). Cf. also the restoration in OGIS 335.100 (ii/i B.C.), where αὐτ [οὶ ἐ ]πιδεξάμενοι τὴν κρίσιν π [ is followed after an hiatus by ἐφε ]ῖνα [ι τὰ κρί ]ματα ἑαυτοῖς. From denoting ";judgment,"; ";sentence,"; the word came to denote the ";offence"; for which one is sentenced, and hence in MGr is frequently used = ";sin,"; as in the song entitled ";The Confessor,"; where the penitent asks—᾽ξομολόγα με, τὰ κρίματά μου ᾽ρώτα με, ";confess me; ask me about my sins,"; and receives the answer—τὰ κρίματά σου ᾽ναι πολλά, καὶ ἀγάπη᾽ νὰ μὴ κάνῃς πλεία, ";thy sins are many; thou must make love no more"; (Abbott Songs, p. 122, cf. p. 272). Cf. τί κρῖμα, ";what a pity !";
