Headword: Νομοφύλακες
Adler number: nu,487
Translated headword: law-guardians
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A particular official position among [the] Athenians, different from [that of] the thesmothetai, used to be called this; their job was to compel the [sc. other] officials to abide by the laws.
Greek Original:
Νομοφύλακες: ἀρχή τις παρὰ Ἀθηναίοις οὕτως ἐκαλεῖτο, διαφέρουσα τῶν θεσμοθετῶν, οἵτινες τὰς ἀρχὰς ἐπηνάγκαζον τοῖς νόμοις χρῆσθαι.
Notes:
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., where Dinarchus (frs. VI.12 and XIV.3 Conomis) and Philochorus (FGrH 328 F64) are cited. Philochorus apparently claims that they were creations of Ephialtes, in 462/1, but otherwise they are not attested until the last quarter of the C4.
See also nu 488 and omicroniota 124 (and theta 267 for the thesmothatai).
