Logothetes ton oikeiakon

The logothetēs tōn oikeiakōn (Greek: λογοθέτης τῶν οἰκιακῶν), originally the epi tōn oikeiakōn (ὁ ἐπὶ τῶν οἰκιακῶν) was a Byzantine official with varying duties.

The oikeiakoi (from οἰκιακός, "belonging to the household") were a class of senior imperial household officials attested in the 9th and 10th centuries. The position of a head of this class (epi tōn oikeiakōn means "in charge of the oikeiakoi") appeared possibly in the 10th century, based on sigillographic evidence, or at any rate before circa 1030.[1] His exact functions are unclear: Rodolphe Guilland considered him the successor of the epi tou eidikou as the head of the imperial private treasury,[2] while Nicolas Oikonomides thought that he administered the Byzantine emperor's private domains. The post was often combined with other positions, and fulfilled a range of judicial and fiscal duties. In the Palaiologan period, it became the logothetēs tōn oikeiakōn, who exercised mainly diplomatic and judicial duties.[1]
