Headword: *)ekklhsi/a kuri/a
Adler number: epsilon,470
Translated headword: principal assembly
Vetting Status: high
The ekklesia [assembly][1] in which they used to confirm [make kyrios] the decrees, is called kyria. There are regular ekklesiai, those that are called kyriai, three per month at Athens, on the first and 10th and 13th days.[2] There are also specially-summoned assemblies[3] called for pressing business. So the ekklesiai that are regular and whose subject matter is well-defined are called kyriai, and those that are summoned for urgent business are synkletoi.

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 19, where the headword phrase occurs (in the genitive case).
[1] cf. epsilon 471. On the ekklesiai see generally ?Aristotle, Athenaion Politeia 43.3-5, with P.J. Rhodes, A Commentary on the Aristotelian Athenaion Politeia (Oxford, 1981) ad loc. Also M.H. Hansen, The Athenian Democracy in the Age of Demosthenes (Oxford 1991) 125-160.
[2] Sc. of each month. The author seems to be suggesting that there were three ekklesiai kyriai a month. According to Ath.Pol. 43.4 there was only one, but some ancient commentators reported the number as three. See Rhodes (1981) 521.
[3] The translation follows not the transmitted proskletois, in the dative case, but the (correct) nominative plural of the scholiast.
