σύνταξις). The tribute paid by the allies of Athens into the treasury of the League was originally called φόρος (see Delos). But after the downfall of the Athenian supremacy, and the establishment of the second confederacy in B.C. 378-7, the old name was dropped, as it had grown hateful to the allies with the general unpopularity of the rule of Athens, and the new assessment was known as σύνταξις (Harpocr. s. v. 169; De Cor. 305; De Pace, 60). See Telos.
