1 Agreements between two Greek states, laying down the conditions under which their nationals might mutually obtain legal redress, were calledσύμβολα. The cases were tried in the courts of the defendant's state. The terms of the compact with Macedonia were to be ratified by the heliastic court of Athens, but Philip claimed the right of final ratification. Others explain it to mean that Philip demanded that the verdicts of the Athenian juries in cases under this pact （δίκαι ἀπὸ συμβόλων） should be confirmed by him.
