συλλέγειν ‘to conduct the levy and act as steward of the tribe on each occasion’, — ἑκάστοτε, whenever it was called upon to contribute a chorus to a public festival. The ἐπιμεληταὶ τῶν φυλῶν were responsible to the Archon for the appointment of the choregi: cp. Dem. In Mid. § 13. Herm. Ant. I. § 149. 8. By τὴν φυλὴν συλλέγειν below is meant to levy (such a contribution) in the tribe. συλλογεῖς, at Athens, were esp. those who called in property confiscated to the State: Herm. Ant. I. § 151. 4.
