Meaning to have a sponsor; for each of the metics [sc. in classical Athens] manages his own affairs in conjunction with a sponsor who is one of the citizens, and pays the metic-tax. And to have a sponsor is called to 'take' a sponsor. Hyperides [writes]: "so that you must instruct those giving testimony of this kind and those producing [???] [not] to deceive you pointlessly, [if] they do not have stronger arguments to make; and compel them to produce for you the law which forbids taking a sponsor".[1]
Greek Original:
Νέμειν προστάτην: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἔχειν προστάτην: τῶν γὰρ μετοίκων ἕκαστος μετὰ προστάτου τῶν ἀστῶν τινος τὰ πράγματα αὑτοῦ συνῴκει καὶ τὸ μετοίκιον κατετίθει. καὶ τὸ ἔχειν προστάτην καλεῖται νέμειν προστάτην. Ὑπερίδης: ὥστε κελευστέον τοὺς μαρτυροῦντας τὰ τοιαῦτα καὶ τοὺς παρεχομένους μάτην ἀπατᾶν ὑμᾶς, μὴ τυγχάνωσι δικαιότερα λέγοντες: καὶ νόμον ἡμῖν ἀναγκάζετε παρέχεσθαι, τὸν κελεύοντα μὴ νέμειν προστάτην.
