    Hello, in this sentence: ἐδίκαζον τὰ ἐγκλήματα καὶ κλοπῆς και ἁρπαγῆς καὶ βίας καὶ κακολογίας.

    κλοπῆς + ἁρπαγῆς + βίας+ κακολογίας, are in genitive cases, are they all complementing the accusative, τὰ ἐγκλήματα ?

    Athens - GR
    έγκλημα κλοπής = crime of theft.
    κλοπῆς + ἁρπαγῆς + βίας+ κακολογίας specify ἐγκλήματα.
    I think we say the same.
