The War-lord offers sacrifices to Artemis the Huntress and to Enyalius,1 and arranges the funeral games in honor of those who have fallen in war, and makes memorial offerings to Harmodius and Aristogeiton. [2] Only private law-suits are brought before him in which resident aliens, ordinary and privileged, and foreign consuls are concerned; he has to take the list of cases and divide it into ten portions and assign one portion by lot to each tribe, and to assign the jurymen for each tribe to the Arbitrators. [3] He himself brings forward cases in which resident aliens are concerned, on charges of acting without their protectors2 or of lacking a protector, and as to estates and heiresses; and all other actions that in the case of citizens are brought in by the Archon, in the case of resident aliens are introduced by the War-lord.
