Headword: *kata/stasis
Adler number: kappa,788
Translated headword: allowance
Vetting Status: high
The allowance seems to be a sum of money which those appointed as cavalrymen used to take from the public treasury on their appointment. So Lysias [sc. uses the term].[1] But Eupolis, too, says: "you were a fool, old man, to take this allowance suddenly, before even learning horsemanship".[2] The money was given back by ex-cavalrymen, when others were appointed in their place; the phylarchs used to request it.
