Basilikoi Anthropoi

   Literally "imperial men," referring generally to imperial officials both high and low. This is the way the term is used in the Kletorologion of Philotheos (q.v.). By the 10th century there may also have been a military detachment with this name. The De ceremoniis of Constantine VII Porphyrogennetos (q.v.) and the Escurial taktikon (q.v.) mention a katepano (q.v.) of the basilikoi.
