The act of someone in the [sc. Athenian] council doing business appropriate to councillors. So Dinarchus and Aristophanes [sc. use the word].[1]
Both the orators and Aristophanes customarily call serving on the council [boulh/] 'council-ship' (boulei/a); for [Aristophanes] says "what councillor is there...who handed over his bouleia to another";[2] the ancients used to call service on the council 'council-ship'.
