Question 1. Who are they at Epidaurus called Κονίποδες and ῎Αρτυνοι?

Solution. The managers of the affairs of the commonwealth were one hundred and eighty men; out of these they elected senators, which they called ἄρτυνοι. The most part of the common people were conversant in husbandry; these they called κονίροδες, because (as may be supposed) they were known by their dirty feet when they came into the city.
