Table of Contents:
1 The appointment of citizens to undertake the various “liturgies” （such as, e.g., the trierarchy） was made from the tax-groups chosen by the several tribes.
2 Thoricus was a deme of the tribe Acamantis.
3 The choregus had for his duties the equipment and training of a chorus for the dramatic contests at one of the great festivals. For this purpose the tribe chose one of its richest members.
4 The gymnasiarch was appointed by the tribe to maintain a team to represent it in the torch-races, which formed a feature of certain Athenian festivals.
5 This third form of public service entailed the duty of giving the annual dinner （in the Prytaneum （?）） to the members of the tribe.
