[1] The process is described at Aristotle, Ath.Pol. 65.2 (web address 1). The token here (for which cf. beta 49, and Demosthenes 18.210: web address 3) is not to be confused with the one issued to the juror when he comes to cast his vote (68.2). For a full discussion of this obscure passage, see Rhodes (1993) 711-712.
