Adler number: alpha,2667
Translated headword: changing, coming to an agreement
Vetting Status: high
Not only when someone makes a peace-libation or comes into friendship with one who is in disagreement with him did the orators use the word katallattomenos ["coming to an agreement"], but also, often, for someone changing money in the assembly.[1] Demosthenes [writes]: "but he also showed us [his gains] by cheese-selling, house-building, boasting that he would be going [on an embassy] even if you did not elect him [to do so], timber-transporting, changing his gold [openly] at the banks."[2]

The unglossed headword is the present participle, masculine nominative singular, of the doubly compound verb a)ntikatalla/ttomai. It is quoted from Demosthenes 19.114 -- but oddly this Suda entry, including that very quotation, twice has katallatto/menos.
[1] "In the assembly" is nonsense in this context. As Demosthenes 19.114 (see next note) shows, what Philokrates is accused of having done "in the assembly" is openly confess there his bribe-taking.
[2] Demosthenes 19.114 (with puropolon, "wheat-selling", for the lexicographer's turopolon, "cheese-selling"). See web address 1 below.
