Inscriptions: The Athenian Councillors

Front Cover
American School of Classical Studies at Athens, 1974 - History - 486 pages
This book presents 494 dedications either made by or honoring members of the Athenian administrative assembly (prytaneis) between 408/7 B.C. and A.D. 231/2. The inscriptions are important because they enable scholars to reconstruct a more precise chronological framework for Hellenistic and later Athenian history while also increasing understanding of the political organization of Attica. Listing thousands of names from 700 years of administration, the dedications also provide a rich source for prosopographers.
