Now read for
comparison the schedule under my statute.“Schedule[The
trierarchs to be chosen according to the assessment of their property at ten
talents to a trireme; if the property be assessed above that sum, the public
service shall be fixed proportionately up to three triremes and a tender.
The same proportion shall be observed where those whose property is under
ten talents form a syndicate to make up that sum.]”
