Headword: Ἡλιασταί
Adler number: eta,214
Translated headword: Heliasts
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the jurors in the Heliaia -- the Heliaia [being] the largest jurycourt at Athens[1] -- who used to be supported by the citizens, drawing a juror's wage of three obols after the verdict. So as a demagogue [Kleon] is calling on those he was supporting. He referred to them as fellow-clansmen of the triobol, as if they were intimates and relatives of the triobol; for he says "aged jurors, brothers[2] of the triobol".
Greek Original:
Ἡλιασταί: οἱ ἐν Ἡλιαίᾳ δικασταί: Ἡλιαία δὲ τὸ μέγιστον δικαστήριον Ἀθήνησιν: οἵτινες ὑπὸ τῶν δημοτῶν ἐτρέφοντο τριώβολον λαμβάνοντες μισθὸν δικαστικὸν μετὰ τὸ κρῖναι. ὡς δημαγωγὸς οὖν ἐπικαλεῖ οὓς ἔτρεφε. συγγενεῖς δὲ αὐτοὺς εἶπε τοῦ τριωβόλου, οἷον προσῳκειώμενοι καὶ προσπεφυκότες τῷ τριωβόλῳ: λέγει γάρ, ὡς γέροντες ἡλιασταὶ φράτορες τριωβόλου.
