['Sellers'] and 'Sellery'. The Sellers hold a particular official position at Athens, ten men in number, one from each tribe. They manage[1] everything which is sold by the city: the taxes and mines and leases and confiscated property. [The] Sellery[2] is the name of the place where the Sellers meet.

Abbreviated from Harpokration s.v., commenting on the mention of these terms (the second of which should be neuter pwlhth/rion) in Hyperides fr. 18 Jensen, and also citing the Aristotelian Athenaion Politeia (47.2) and Isaeus fr. 50 Sauppe.
See also pi 2159, pi 2161.
[1] The transmitted text has dokou=si, "They seem", but this is a corruption of dioikou=si; see Harpok.
[2] Both here and in the headword-phrase itself the word pwlhth/rion is slightly corrupt; I have ignored this in translation.
