[isoteles] and isoteleia. [sc. isoteleia was] a particular honour frequently given to those metics who seemed worthy, which brought them exemption from the metic-tax. Theophrastus[1] says that isoteleis also used to have exemption from the other things the metics did. And [the] Athenians used to vote tax-exemption to whole cities, such as Olynthus and Thebes. The isoteleis paid a prescribed tax of some kind.
Greek Original:
Ἰσοτελὴς καὶ Ἰσοτέλεια: πολλάκις τιμή τις ἐδίδοτο τοῖς ἀξίοις φανεῖσι τῶν μετοίκων, καθ' ἣν τοῦ μετοικίου ἄφεσις αὐτῶν ἐγίγνετο. ὅτι δὲ καὶ τῶν ἄλλων, ὧν ἔπραττον οἱ μέτοικοι, ἄφεσιν εἶχον ἰσοτελεῖς Θεόφραστος λέγει. καὶ πόλεσι δὲ ὅλαις ἐψηφίζοντο τὴν ἀτέλειαν Ἀθηναῖοι, ὥσπερ Ὀλυνθίοις καὶ Θηβαίοις. ὁ δὲ ἰσοτελὴς ὡρισμένον τι τέλος ἐδίδου.
