This place in the theater [sc. in Athens was] set aside for the councillors [bouleutai], just as [the] "ephebic" [place was set aside] for the ephebes.[1]
Arrian [writes]: "the ones having written not only of the deeds of Trajan, but also of his plans."[2] And elsewhere: "this thing happened according to a greater volition, in no way intelligible to humans."[3]

Less of a ragbag of an entry than it might seem: the connecting thread is Greek words with the root boul-.
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Birds 794, where the headword occurs (web address 1). The information is correct, at least as far as the council is concerned (cf. P.J. Rhodes, The Athenian Boule (Oxford 1972) 13 with n.4). Ephebes - military cadets - may have had special seating also, though probably not in the era when Birds was staged.
