This Diocles is a distinct person from Ciron's brother-in-law, Diocles ὁ Φλυεύς, of Phlya, § 3. εἰς τοὺς φράτορας...εἰσήγαγεν Cp. Dem. or. XXXIX. Adv. Boeot. de nom. § 4, ἐγγράφει τοῖς Ἀπατουρίοις τουτονὶ Βοιωτὸν εἰς τοὺς φράτορας. This was done on the third day of the Apaturia, called κουρεῶτις (the first day being δορπεία, the supper, — the second, ἀνάρρυσις, the sacrifice): and the ceremony — here represented as occurring soon after birth — was seldom deferred beyond the third or fourth year: Herm. Ant. I. § 99. 2. 10. Cp. Ar. Ranae 418, ὃς ἑπτέτης ὢν οὐκ ἔφυσε φράτορας. ἐξ ἀστῆς καὶ ἐγγυητῆς ‘the child of an Attic mother, born in wedlock’: ἐγγυητῆς, betrothed with the consent of her father or his legal substitute: see note on § 14, ἐγγυησαμένους Cp. [Dem.] or. LVII. Adv. Eubul. § 66, ἀλλὰ μὴν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτὸς ζῶν, ὀμόσας τὸν νόμιμον τοῖς φράτορσιν ὅρκον, εἰσήγαγεν ἐμὲ ἀστὸν ἐξ ἀστῆς ἐγγυητῆς αὐτῷ γεγενημένον εἰδώς.
