Headword: Καταλογεύς
Adler number: kappa,627
Translated headword: registrar
Vetting Status: high
When the Athenians had collectively voted to entrust affairs of state to seven thousand of the citizens, there were certain men who had to register those suitable for this; and this process, naturally, was called registration. And a registrar [was] the man assigned to it.
Greek Original:
Καταλογεύς: Ἀθηναίων συνεψηφισμένων ἑπτακισχιλίοις τῶν ἀστῶν ἐγχειρίσασθαι τὰ πράγματα τῆς πόλεως, ἦσάν τινες οἱ τοὺς εἰς τοῦτο ἐπιτηδείους καταλέξοντες: καὶ τοῦτο εἰκότως κληθῆναι καταλογίσασθαι. καὶ καταλογεύς, ὁ εἰς τοῦτο τεταγμένος.
This refers to Athenian constitutional history of the year 411 BCE, when five thousand (sic) Athenians were so registered; and the passage almost certainly derives from ancient comment on [Lysias] 20.13 which refers to this and uses -- as Thucydides 8.97-98 does not -- the noun katalogeus.
There is a broadly similar entry in Photius, but without the number.
