Greek Original:
Χρημάτισις: χρημάτων συναγωγή. Αἰλιανός: ὁ δὲ τῆς θεοσυλίας τε καὶ ἀθέσμου χρηματίσεως διαφθαρεὶς τὸν μισθὸν ἠνέγκατο τοῦτον πικρότατόν τε καὶ πικρωδέστατον.
[1] Aelian fr. 189 Domingo-Forasté (186 Hercher); I have accepted Kuhn's emendation of πικρωδέστατον ("most bitter-seeming?"; not in LSJ) to φρικωδέστατον ("most horrible"). [Note however [DW] that Hercher prints πρεπωδέστατον , "most fitting" (ironic).]
