When men had passed the age of fifty and had a completely blameless record, [the Athenians] used to pick them at random from the deme register[s] and have them arbitrate disputes betwen citizens. Aliens, however, were not allowed to participate. Those who found fault with an arbitration could appeal in the people's court.
