At Athens those were "sukophantia" whose business it was to inform
against any one whom they might detect exporting figs out of Attica;
and as sometimes they seemed to extort money from those loath to be
exposed, the name "sukophantes" from the time of Aristophanes down
was a general term of opprobrium to designate, a malignant and base
accuser from love of gain.
from a compound of 4810 and a derivative of 5316; to be a fig-informer
(reporter of the law forbidding the exportation of figs from Greece),
"sycophant", i.e. (genitive and by extension) to defraud (exact
unlawfully, extort):-accuse falsely, take by false accusation.
