Full description for Athenian Settlements of the Fourth Century B.C.
This work surveys available evidence on Athenian settlements and settlers of the fourth century BC, calling several conventional interpretations about them into question, through a rigorous preference for evidence over speculation. Three chapters trace a chronology of events relating to the settlements, examining their personnel collectively, statistically and individually, and discussing evidence for their political, economic and religious institutions. Long appendices establish improved texts of numerous inscriptions relevant to the topic and provide several kinds of data on more than 1000 definite, probable or possible settlers. This text is intended to be of use to students of Attic political institutions, epigraphy and prosopography, and of fourth-century-BC Greek history.
