The arbitrators are different from the jurors. For the latter used to try cases in the jurycourts and judge the [cases sent there] on appeal from the arbitrators, whereas the arbitrators used to arbitrate first, after being assigned disputes by lot or after the parties had entrusted their disputes to them for judgement. And if [the arbitrators' decision] pleased the opposing parties, the suit came to an end; if not, they cast the charges and the summonses and testimonies, together with the [sc. relevant] laws and the other proofs of both sides, into urns and sealed them up and handed them over to the [sc officials called] introducers of lawsuits.
