  Aedile - WCD (Wiki Classical Dictionary)
The discrepancy may be superficial, however, as the Roman tradition states that the first aediles were the assistants of the plebeian tribunes.
In this law, a second couple of aediles was introduced, the curule aediles, so named because they possessed imperium and were therefore permitted to sit in curule chairs at meetings of the Senate.
The plebeian and curulian aediles were elected by the Comitia tributa, an assembly of the people that was divided into voting districts.

  Aedile - LoveToKnow 1911
The plebeians accepted the offer, and accordingly two " curule "aediles were appointed - at first from the patricians alone, then from patricians and plebeians in turn, lastly, from either - at the Comitia Tributa under the presidency of the consul.
But although the curule aediles always ranked higher than the plebeian, their functions gradually approximated and became practically identical.
Under Augustus the office lost much of its importance, its juridical functions and the care of the games being transferred to the praetor, while its city responsibilities were limited by the appointment of a praefectus urbi.

 Erastus: City Treasurer of Corinth and Associate of the Apostle Paul
The Latin word Aedile denotes an official who, among other duties, is in charge of the financial affairs of the city.
The Greek word that Paul uses to denote "treasurer" (Oikonomos) is not the equivalent of the Latin word Aedile, which refers to a somewhat higher office in ancient municipal government.
The weight of historical evidence suggests that the office of Aedile was held only by men of social standing, while those who occupied the socially lower office of Oikonomos were usually not promoted to the rank of Aedile.
