Fascicle IG II/III³ 1, 5 contains 325 laws and decrees from the years between 229/8 BC, the first year of independence from Macedonian occupation, and the end of the third Macedonian War in 168/7. Of particular significance are the honorary decrees for Athenian Prytaneis and Ephebes, and the functionaries of Hellenistic kings. Four extensive inscriptions from the Athenian Agora are also published here for the first time. Thanks to Tracy’s study of the “Attic letter-cutters”, the chronology of the decrees and the order of the Archons could be put on a form footing. There is an index to the inscriptions, and where preserved these are illustrated with photographs.
