relegated as their "hitmen".

a way of defusing a major confrontations between rival politicians (by
removing one of them from the scene), neutralising someone thought to be a
threat to the state, or exiling a potential tyrant. Crucially, ostracism had
no relation to the processes of justice. There was no charge or defence, and
the exile was not in fact a penalty; it was simply a command from the
Athenian people that one of their member be gone for ten years.

The procedure is to be distinguished from the modern use of the term, which
generally refers to informal modes of exclusion from a group through
