NOMOPHYLACES
Form: Guardians of the Laws.
A board found in different states of Greece, which had to see to the observance of the requirements of the law, especially in the deliberative assemblies. At Athens, after the abolition of the Areopagus as a board of supervision (about 461 B.C.) a college of seven nomophylaces was introduced as a check upon the senate, the public assembly, and the magistrates.
