Little is known of the old trittyes; an ancient guess that they were identical with the *phratries seems to be mistaken; that each contained four of the *naukrariai is possible but far from certain. In *Cleisthenes(2)'s new locally based organization each of the ten tribes (*phylai) was divided into trittyes It is disputed whether each trittys was located entirely in one region (Ath. Pol. 21. 4) or the principle was modified to produce trittyes of approximately equal size; and how the trittyes of the prytaneis on duty for 24 hours (Ath. Pol. 44. 1) was composed. Each trittys consisted of one or more *demes, commonly but not invariably a block of neighbouring demes. The trittyes did not become active corporations to the same extent as the tribes and the demes, but they played some part in the organization of the navy, and possibly of the army, and in appointment to some of the larger boards.
