Headword: *bakthri/a kai\ su/mbolon
Adler number: beta,49
Translated headword: staff and token
Vetting Status: high
Those assigned to jury-service [sc. in classical Athens] used to take from the public attendants a token and a staff, and this is how they acted as jurors. The court had the same colour as the staff. The token, however, they would give back after the verdict and collect the three-obol; this was the pay for jurors.
