), the members of a council of Ten, who succeeded the
Thirty in the supreme power at Athens, B.C. 403 (Harpocrat. s. v.). They
were chosen from the ten tribes, one from each (Xen. Hell. 2.4
, § § 23, 24); two of the
Thirty, if not more, were among them, and, like the Thirty, they relied on
Spartan assistance against Thrasybulus and the exiles. They remained masters
of Athens till the party of Thrasybulus obtained possession of the city and
the democracy was restored; and, like the Thirty, were excepted from the
amnesty, but allowed to retire into banishment (Lys. c.
§ 54 ff.; Grote, ch. 65, 5.590).
