This collection contains: Aristotle's "The Constitution of Athens"; Xenophon's "The Politeia of the Spartans"; "The Constitution of the Athenians" ascribed to Xenophon the Orator; and, "The Boeotian Constitution" from the Oxyrhynchus Historian. In bringing together, translating, and annotating these constitutional documents from ancient Greece thirty five years ago, J.M. Moore produced an authoritative work of the highest scholarship. There is an explanatory essay by classics scholar Kurt A. Raaflaub that expands this indispensable collection.
