A very common word in the [sc. Attic] orators.[1] It is a drachma paid by the litigants in private suits. Menander in Woman-hater [writes]: "he is dragging a two-leaved tablet there, and a fee of one drachma".[2] Aristotle in Constitution of [the] Athenians, speaking of the thesmothetai, says: "they also receive the public suits in which there is a fee: being a foreigner [sc. who masquerades as a citizen] and bribery by a foreigner - if someone bribes his way out of a charge of being a foreigner - and falsely registering someone as a debtor and falsely appearing as a witness to a judicial summons and failing to delete a discharged debtor and failing to register a debtor and seduction".[3] Demetrius of Phaleron in the [volumes] On Lawmaking says that the arbitrators take the drachmas: one, which they call a fee, from the initial complaint, and another in connection with every affidavit.[4]

[1] Perhaps accidentally, a more precise form of words (already in Photius pi302) than the one used by Harpokration s.v., where no genre is specified. For other senses of the headword, see pi 441 and pi 442.
