January 5, 2009
Fragmentary Decrees from the Athenian Agora, by Michael B. Walbank, has recently been published as Hesperia Supplement 38. This volume presents the editiones principes of the most fragmentary inscriptions found during the excavations in the Athenian Agora between 1931 and 1967. These inscriptions comprise parts of 100 decrees of the Athenian state and other political bodies, ranging in date from the beginning of the 4th through the end of the 2nd century B.C. Identified among the documents are proxeny decrees, honorifics, and grants of citizenship. Each inscription is illustrated and described, with a transcription of the legible letters and commentary. The monograph is intended to serve as a supplement to both Agora XVI and Agora XV, and it will be of interest to students of Greek epigraphy and Athenian political history.
