While we thus approached them, we at the same time kept an eye on them to see whether they disembarked anything from the ship, or paid any harbor-dues.2

1 A place in the market where samples of goods could be displayed. Compare Dem. 50.24.

2 The books of the harbor-masters would show whether the tax of 2 percent had been collected, and thus whether any goods had been landed.
