Meaning agreed financial arrangement. Demosthenes in the Philippics [writes]: "and there should be one and the same system for drawing [pay] and for doing what is necessary [to earn it]".[1] They used to call each of the tribute-payments[2] "contributions", because the Greeks were unhappy with the name "tribute" [phoros] -- Kallistratos having given it this [new] name.[3] And Hyperides says: "currently paying a contribution to nobody, we who had once seen fit to exact them".[4]
