There was a custom for the taxiarchs to announce to their own soldiers, through a herald, what had been decided; for instance, where it was necessary to march, and how many days' provisions should be planned for. Aristophanes in Birds [writes]: "and look at what we should write up on the boards". From a metaphor of the tribesmen, who write up the [sc. names of the] soldiers on a board.
