The defection[1] of the elective [sc. officials].
Greek Original:
Ἐπιχειροτονία: ἡ τῶν χειροτονητῶν ἀπόστασις.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting on this noun's appearance in Hyperides fr. 162 Jensen.
[1] So the transmitted text, ἀπόστασις ; but this should read, as it does in Harpok., κατάστασις ("appointment"). The error is repeated in ps.-Zonaras.
