They are officials at Athens appointed by lot from the five-hundred-bushel men;[1] they guard both the sacred and the public monies in the temple of Athena on [the] acropolis, as well as the statue of Athena itself. There are also other official treasurers, elected ones, who look after the sacred and public triremes: one for the Paralos and one for that of Ammon.[2]

[1] See pi 972; these were, in theory at least, the very richest Athenians.
[2] On these ceremonial triremes, esp. the (?)Ammonis, see P.J. Rhodes, A Commentary on the Aristotelian Athenaion Politeia (Oxford 1981) 687-8. In the Suda, see iota 161, pi 387, pi 388, pi 389, sigma 47.
