  Ephor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There were five ephors elected annually, who swore each month to uphold the rule of the two kings, while the kings swore to uphold the law.
The ephors were elected by the popular assembly, and all citizens were eligible for election.
The ephors were also considered to be personally at war with the helots, so that they could imprison or execute any of them for any reason at any time without having to bring them to trial or violate religious rituals.

 Ephor - LoveToKnow 1911
There is no evidence for the theory that originally the ephors were market inspectors; they seem rather to have had from the outset judicial or police functions.
In historical times the ephors were five in number, the first of them giving his name to the year, like the eponymous archon at Athens.
The ephors were elected annually, originally no doubt by the kings, later by the people; their term of office began with the new moon after the autumnal equinox, and they had an official residence (Oop€Iov) in the Agora.

 Ephors of Sparta   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Its five members are chosen from among all the people, with the result that very often men who are not at all well-off find themselves holding this office, and their lack of means makes them open to bribery.
And just because the power of the ephors is excessive and dictatorial, even the Spartan kings have been forced to curry favor with them.
The ephors have powers of jurisdiction also, and decide cases of importance; but considering that anybody at all may hold the office, it would be better that they should not have power to give verdicts on their own, but only to decide in accordance with stated rules and regulations.

 Mythos - Guide
Ephors are able to delete posts and discussions from their kingdom's assembly, vote for and declare war against other kingdoms, and change their kingdom's name, whereas non-ephor cities can not perform any of these actions.
Ephors that are no longer under their patron's guard are presented with the option of voting for war against another kingdom, or voting for no war at all.
If more than 50% of the ephors in your kingdom vote for war against the same kingdom, then each ephor in your kingdom will be given the option to officially declare war against that kingdom.

 Agis - The Reformer of Sparta
The ephors would look up in the sky for meteors, and if they saw one, it was a sign from the gods that the king was guilty of some offense against the gods and must be immediately deposed.
When Lysander's term as ephor expired, the newly elected ephors (who were all of the party of the rich) called back Leonidas and dismissed the indictments against him.
The same ephor asked whether now he was sorry, and Agis answered that even if he suffered the most extreme penalty for it, he would never be sorry for doing what was just and glorious.

 Ephor
The Helots are the husbandmen of the one, the Perioeci of the other, and both Cretans and Lacedaemonians have common meals, which were anciently called by the Lacedaemonians not ‘phiditia’ but ‘andria’; and the Cretans have the same word, the use of which proves that the common meals originally came from Crete.
Further, the two constitutions are similar; for the office of the Ephors is the same as that of the Cretan Cosmi, the only difference being that whereas the Ephors are five, the Cosmi are ten in number.
The elders, too, answer to the elders in Crete, who are termed by the Cretans the council.
