is this referring to ekklesia as the elders? : According to Plato, its combination with the kings’ arrogant rule, and the right to an equal vote on the most important matters, produced security and at the same time sound sense... by placing the office of the Elders in the middle as a kind of ballast, and thus striking a balance, it found the safest arrangement and organisation, with the twenty-eight Elders always siding with the kings when it was a matter of resisting democracy, yet in turn reinforcing the people against the development of tyranny.” (Plutarch, Life of Lycurgus, 5)

Hey,
I'm pretty sure Plutarch is referring to the Gerousia in this quote.

The gerousia were the council of elders that were made up of 28 men over 60 years old, as well as the 2 Spartan kings. They were elected for life by the citizens of the assembly (the ekklesia). They had wide judicial power in serious criminal cases such as death, exile or disgrace. They could frame the wording of legislation and proposed laws that would be approved/rejected by the Ekklesia. They could veto any decision of the apella/general assembly and could also put the kings on trials.

Hope this helps! :)

Hey Guys! I needed a specific quote realting to what my teacher means here for governmental roles in sparta: You could also explain the impact of the gerousia having old men only- there is quote that detailed that age can effect the body AND the mind- not always good.

But i can't find it? If someone knows what quote this refers to please do not hesitate to quote my back with the quote:)

Hey,
I found the quote!! Aristotle says that “the mind, like the body, is subject to old age”.

Hope this helps!! :)

The gerousia were elected for life and Aristotle doubts whether they should be (elected for life/while they are really old) as they determine important judicial trials and legislation. He beleives that their mind and ability to determine trials/laws can deteriorate as they age and may not be as strong as when they were first elected.

Hope this helps!! :)
