Demosthenes in [the] Philippics [sc. mentions it].[1] One of the triremes sent out, at Athens, on public business, taking its name from some hero. Its crew were called paraloi; they received four obols for this service, and spent most of the year at home, and other duties were given them by the city.[2]

From Harpokration s.v.
[1] Demosthenes 8.29. [This speech, On the Chersonese, is a "Philippic" in the broad sense employed by ancient scholars, who did not confine it, as we do, to speeches 4, 6, 9, and 10.]
[2] A simplified version of what Harpok. says (citing Hyperides fr. 51 Jensen and Phylarchus FGrH 81 F38). More information about the Paralos, from another source, comes in the entry following (pi 390); and see also sigma 47, for the Paralos and its sister ship the Salaminia. The Paralos is also mentioned at pi 387 and pi 388, as well as iota 161.
