TOWN CLERK . In Græco-Asiatic cities under the Roman Empire the grammateus (tr. [Note: translate or translation.] ‘town clerk’) was responsible for the form of decrees presented to the popular assembly. They were first approved by the senate and then sent to the assembly, which formally passed them. At Ephesus ( Acts 19:35 ) the clerk feared that he would have to account to the Roman governor for the irregularly constituted assembly.
