Aprostasiou Graphé

ἀπροστασίου γραφή). An action at Athens, falling under the jurisdiction of the polemarch, which was brought against those resident aliens who had neglected to provide themselves with a patron (προστάτης). It is probable that the aliens' tax was regularly paid through the προστάτης, and that he was responsible for it; and in that case the default of payment would of itself prove neglect to comply with the provisions of the law. See Meier, Att. Process, p. 315.
