Aristotle in the Constitution of [the] Athenians, speaking about the ephebes, says this: "the second year, at an assembly in the theater, they accept a shield and a spear from the people and patrol the countryside, spending their time in the guardposts".[1] It is noteworthy that, whereas Aristotle asserts that the ephebes are one year in the [role of] patrolmen, Aeschines [says] two.[2]
Greek Original:
Περίπολος: Ἀριστοτέλης ἐν τῇ Ἀθηναίων πολιτείᾳ περὶ τῶν ἐφήβων λέγων οὕτως φησί: τὸν δεύτερον ἐνιαυτόν, ἐκκλησίας ἐν τῷ θεάτρῳ γινομένης, λαβόντες ἀσπίδα καὶ δόρυ παρὰ τοῦ δήμου, περιπολοῦσι τὴν χώραν καὶ διατρίβουσιν ἐν τοῖς φυλακτηρίοις. παρατηρητέον δέ, ὅτι ὁ μὲν Ἀριστοτέλης ἕνα φησὶν ἐνιαυτὸν ἐν τοῖς περιπόλοις γίνεσθαι τοὺς ἐφήβους, ὁ δὲ Αἰσχίνης δύο.
