Product description

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 for 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. To emphasize the importance of inscriptions as physical objects, a number of photographs have been included.

Review quote

Review from previous edition It is not often that a work of epigraphy is the year's most eagerly awaited volume. Greek Historical Inscriptions, 404-323, edited by P. J. Rhodes and Robin Osborne is just that ... from now on the fourth century will seem a much more welcome place. Greece & Rome an extraordinarily interesting collection which differs from earlier works not only in the number and the geographic and thematic range of the inscriptions presented, but also in the inclusion of translations and extensive commentaries for each text, which makes it an exceptionally useful teaching tool.
