Translation:
A very common word in the [sc. Attic] orators.[1] It is a drachma paid by the litigants in private suits. Menander in Woman-hater [writes]: "he is dragging a two-leaved tablet there, and a fee of one drachma".[2] Aristotle in Constitution of [the] Athenians, speaking of the thesmothetai, says: "they also receive the public suits in which there is a fee: being a foreigner [sc. who masquerades as a citizen] and bribery by a foreigner - if someone bribes his way out of a charge of being a foreigner - and falsely registering someone as a debtor and falsely appearing as a witness to a judicial summons and failing to delete a discharged debtor and failing to register a debtor and seduction".[3] Demetrius of Phaleron in the [volumes] On Lawmaking says that the arbitrators take the drachmas: one, which they call a fee, from the initial complaint, and another in connection with every affidavit.[4]

Notes:
[1] Perhaps accidentally, a more precise form of words (already in Photius pi302) than the one used by Harpokration s.v., where no genre is specified.
