Hesperia Supplements #38: Fragmentary Decrees from the Athenian Agora Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume publishes the editiones principes of fragments of inscriptions found during excavations in the Athenian Agora between 1931 and 1967. These comprise parts of 100 decrees of the Athenian state and other political bodies and, while sometimes only a few words are preserved, the texts nevertheless provide some important insights into the workings of ancient law. Each of the inscriptions is illustrated and described, with a transcription of the legible letters and commentary.

Book News Annotation:

The marketplace in the Greek capital was excavated between 1931 and 1967, and Walbank has been systematically looking for all inscription fragments from it that have not been previously published. Here he presents texts from 100 fragments of decrees of the Athenian body politic and subdivisions of it, including some dealing with councilors and their officers, and some listing and honoring young men who had completed their higher education and military training. The date range is from the beginning of the fourth century to the end of the second BC. He describes each fragment by inventory number, marble type, date and place of discovery, physical condition, dimensions, and letter height and spacing. The Greek is not translated. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Company. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
