Halimous is a deme of [the Athenian tribe] Leontis. Agasikles is said to have bribed the Halimousians[1] and because of this, although a foreigner, was registered in the citizen body[2].
Greek Original:
*(alimou/sios: *(alimou=s dh=mo/s e)sti th=s *leonti/dos. le/getai o( *)agasiklh=s toi=s *(alimousi/ois sundika/sai kai\ dia\ tou=to ce/nos w)\n e)ggrafh=nai th=| politei/a|.
[1] The transmitted text uses the verb sundika/zein (join in judging), but it should be emended, both here and in alpha 169 (and Harpokration s.v. Agasikles), to sundeka/zein, literally to bribe en masse (for which, as LSJ note, sundika/zein is a common error).
[2] This occurred at some time between 336 and 324 BC, and led to Agasikles being impeached. See generally M.H.Hansen, Eisangelia (Odense 1975) no.115; D.Whitehead, The Demes of Attica (Princeton 1986) 293,294.
