The officials elected by lot were formerly those elected from the whole tribe together with the Nine Archons and those now elected in the temple of Theseus who used to be divided among the demes; but since the demes began to sell their offices, the latter also are elected by lot from the whole tribe, excepting members of the Council and Guards1; these they entrust to the demes.

1 Possibly the guards of the docks, mentioned at Aristot. Ath. Pol. 24.3.
