Adler number: delta,887
Translated headword: arbitrators
Vetting Status: high
When men had passed the age of fifty and had a completely blameless record, [the Athenians] used to pick them at random from the deme register[s] and have them arbitrate disputes betwen citizens. Aliens, however, were not allowed to participate. Those who found fault with an arbitration could appeal in the people's court.
Greek Original:
Diaitêtai: tous huper pentêkonta etê gegonotas kai katharous pasês aitias hupeilêmmenous, apo tou lêxiarchikou grammateiou klêrôsantes ta tôn politôn diaitan epoioun. xenois mentoi ge epi touto elthein ou sunkechôrêto. exesti de tois memphomenois diaitan ekkaleisthai to dêmosion dikastêrion.
Comparably in Hesychius (delta1032) and other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Plato, Laws 920D, where (Magnesian) arbitration is mentioned. See also delta 888.
