Headword: *diayh/fisis
Adler number: delta,850
Translated headword: review-balloting
Vetting Status: high
[Review-balloting] and voting-off. The citizens [sc. of Athens] each come together in their own demes and engage in a secret ballot concerning those whose citizenship is the subject of accusation or has been mis-registered; e.g. Acharnians about Acharnians and the Eleusinians about Eleusinians and the remaining demesmen likewise. And this is called review-balloting. Accordingly, those who get more votes possess their citizenship indisputedly, but any who receive fewer votes are no longer acknowledged [sc. as demesmen and citizens], and this is voting-off.
