This book aims to examine the text of every known Athenian inscription datable to the period after the new constitution of Sulla (ca. 68 B.C.) and to reconstruct information about the civic offices and institutions established in this period. The author therefore presents all the evidence he has found for the duties of major officials, councillors, and minor magistrates. He compares this information with the earlier picture painted by Aristotle in his study of the Constitution of the Athenians, and shows that many changes took place in the Roman period.
