1 We learn from Aristoph. Wasps 1109, that the Odeum, built by Pericles as a music school, near the great theatre, was sometimes used as a law-court, and Pollux 8.33, states that suits concerning grain were decided there. Compare Dem. 59.52. It is easy, therefore, to assume that distribution of grain may have been made there.
2 The long-porch was a warehouse for grain in the Peiraeus.
3 Literally a half-sixth （i.e. one-twelfth） of a medimnus, a measure containing about twelve gallons.
