Vetting Status: high
In Herodotus [this means] the expenses, and the meetings of those in office, and the [sc. phenomenon of] belonging/contributing to a unit.
Greek Original:
*katate/lea: para\ *(hrodo/tw| ta\ a)nalw/mata, kai\ ta\ sune/dria tw=n e)n a)rxh=| kai\ to\ suntelei=n ei)s ta/gma.
From (ill-informed) glosses on Herodotus 1.103.1 (web address 1), where the present headword actually occurs as a prepositional phrase: Kyaxares was the first Median king who divided his Asian troops into regiments kata\ te/lea, literally "in accordance with (their) duties". (For Herodotus' liking for this phrase in his military descriptions see also 7.87, 7.211.3, 9.20, 9.22.1, 9.23.1, 9.33.1; and elsewhere cf. e.g. Arrian, Indica 18.12.)
