διαβατήρια). A sacrifice offered to Zeus and Athené by the Spartan kings on passing the frontier of Laconia in command of an army (Rep. Lac. 13.2 foll.). If the victims were unfavourable they disbanded the army and returned home (Thuc. v. 54, 55Thuc. 116). We also find διαβατήρια offered by a Roman general in passing a swollen river (Lucull. 24).
