  • English: These disks were used to cast a juror's vote on a case. They would cover up the top when submitting their secret vote, which if closed meant innocent and open (left bottom) meant guilty, or there was a hole in the soul. Ca. 300 BC. Ancient Agora Museum in Athens.
  • Français : Jetons de vote en bronze utilisés par les jurés, de l'Héliée notamment. Ils sont constitués d'un disque de bronze portant une marque ou une inscription d'identification et d'une tige axiale, pleine ou creuse, qui sert à déterminer le vote : le choix d'un jeton à tige pleine indiquait un vote pour l'acquittement, une tige creuse la condamnation. Vers 300 a. C. Musée de l'Agora antique d'Athènes.
