A proverb in reference to those who have grown old.

Ancient "rosters", katalogoi, served a variety of purposes, but the commonest was to list men of an age (and physical fitness) for military service. For the phrase u(pe\r to\n kata/logon as proverbial, see also Photius (upsilon146 Theodoridis) and several of the paroemiographers. Its earliest attested appearance -- but without proverbial overtones -- is in Demosthenes 13.4 (web address 1).
