Attic tribes
From Mr Fison May 5 1882

Hermann says the Attic people were divided into
4 [Greek script]. The [Greek script] were divided into [Greek script]
and "houses". [Here - crossed out] I find that [Greek script] refers to the
three divisions into [Greek script]
Each of these is an [Greek script]
Wachsmuth says that each phyle had these divisions
They are evidently nothing morethan grades of society
+ may be dismissed by us.
I find the word "houses" to be [Greek script] + arrive to the
conclusion that [Greek script] here is equivalent [Greek script]
It is not merely an individual but "a family man"
a house father. But here is a difficulty:
Hermann says:
30 houses = 1 [Greek script]
30 [Greek script] = 1 [Greek script]
3 [Greek script] = 1 [Greek script]
Now why should a [Greek script] be limited to 30 [Greek script]
I doubt this. On the other hand Thirlwall (so Liddell
+ Scott say) gives 3 [Greek script] = 1 [Greek script]
Wachsmuth says of the older divisions that
each [Greek script] contained 3 Trittyes + each
Trittys contained 4 Nancraria. The Trittys
were of later date than the [Greek script] and were
"established to regulate the Megalenses of citizens."
Each Nancraria had to furnish a band of horsemen
and 1 sheep. Hence its name though some
refer it to [Greek script] = to dwell, an unlikely

On the whole it seems clear that the only
divison of "Kin" are the [Greek script], the
[Greek script], and perhaps the [Greek script].
