Overview

"This volume is a successor to the second volume of M. N. Tod's Selection of Greek Historical Inscriptions (OUP, 1948). It provides an up-to-date selection—with introduction, Greek texts, English translations, and commentaries which cater to the needs of today's students—of inscriptions which are important for the study of Greek history in the fourth century BC. The texts chosen illuminate not only the mainstream of Greek political and military history, but also institutional, social, economic, and religious life."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There is hardly an aspect of ancient Greek political, religious, or social life on which the inscriptions collected here do not touch. The new collection introduces several innovations, the most important are the English translations that accompany all Greek texts, photographs, and reminders that the texts on paper were once part of more substantial physical objects. Ancient historians certainly will find it indespensable." American Journal of Archaeology
