καὶ περὶ στρατιᾶς πλήθους κτλ—this vote shows how chary the Ecclesia was of delegating its authority even to the Strategi. Even this did not excuse them from their responsibility: they would still have to render an account (εὔθυνα) on laying down their office, and might be prosecuted if they made mistakes (VII. 48). Gardner and Jevons, Manual p. 470.
