ἀποστολεῖς). Ten commissioners, chosen out of the body of Athenian citizens without distinction of tribes, in order to secure the efficiency and promptitude of a naval expedition (ἀπόστολος) which had been voted. They were thus an extraordinary authority, appointed by decree of the people (Böckh, Urkunden über das Seewesen, p. 466; Hudtwalcker, De Diaetet. p. 71; Meier and Schömann, Att. Prozess, p. 112, with Lipsius's note in the new ed.).
