Comments

Hystorical detail: Diobol equals two obols, in use in many cities of ancient Greece.
The diobelia was on the dole, a diobol of a day, granted in ancient Athens during the war deceleica, for citizens impoverished by Spartan occupation of the Attica territories.
It was also assigned, as a bonus, to those who participated in the people's assembly, and probably later, to those who went to the theater.
