Dinarchus in the information[-speech] Against Polyeuktos after his expulsion from the council [sc. uses the word].[1] Perhaps the orator is calling Polyeuktos chosen[-again] because he prosecuted some men maliciously and then took bribes to help the selfsame men; alternatively because he was convicted of malicious prosecution and fined and because of this was prevented from speaking before he had paid the fine he owed, but then paid the fine and spoke again. They used to call such people chosen again; but also [sc. called this were] those voted out of some office and later [re-]elected. But Pindar in his Dithyrambs applied the term to buildings demolished and rebuilt.[2]
