Aristotle in the Constitution of [the] Athenians, speaking about the ephebes, says this: "the second year, at an assembly in the theater, they accept a shield and a spear from the people and patrol the countryside, spending their time in the guardposts".[1] It is noteworthy that, whereas Aristotle asserts that the ephebes are one year in the [role of] patrolmen, Aeschines [says] two.[2]
