A festival day [sc. in classical Athens] in which all those in office presented themselves used to be called this. The Athenians' custom was to make this day the first of the year.[1] Demosthenes in the [speech] Concerning the Mismanaged Embassy [writes]: "the council [...] made the Inauguration sacrifices. Joining in the feast and participating were the generals and virtually all the office-holders".[2]
