  • Debt Cancellation in the Classical and Hellenistic Poleis: Between Demagogy and Crisis Management.Lucia Cecchet - 2018 - The European Legacy 23 (1-2):127-148.
    This article discusses the way the ancient Greeks dealt with public and private debts, focusing on one specific aspect: debt cancellation. On the one hand, ancient Greeks were aware of the risks entailed in debt relief as a tool for fuelling civic strife: sources describe it as a demagogic or even criminal action often in association with the political agenda of tyrants. On the other hand, however, Greeks knew well also the benefic effects of debt cancellation in coping with financial (...)

  • Aristophanes’ Ecclesiazvsae and the Remaking of the Πατριοσ Πολιτεια.Alan Sheppard - 2016 - Classical Quarterly 66 (2):463-483.
    Ecclesiazusae, the first surviving work of Aristophanes from the fourth centuryb.c.e., has often been dismissed as an example of Aristophanes’ declining powers and categorized as being less directly rooted in politics than its fifth-century predecessors owing to the after-effects of Athens’ defeat in the Peloponnesian War. Arguing against this perception, which was largely based on the absence of ad hominem attacks characterizing Aristophanes’ earlier works, this paper explores howEcclesiazusaeengages with contemporary post-war Athenian politics in a manner which, while different to (...)

  • Nomothesia in Classical Athens: What Sources Should We Believe?Mirko Canevaro - 2013 - Classical Quarterly 63 (1):139-160.
    In the fifth centuryb.c.e.the Athenians did not make any distinction between laws and decrees. The Assembly passed both kinds of measures in the same way, and both general enactments and short-term provisions held the same legal status. At the end of the fifth century, however, the Athenians decided to make a distinction between the two kinds of measures and created the rule that no decree would be superior to a law. The Assembly continued to pass decrees in the same way, (...)

  • Decrees in Andocides' on the Mysteries and ‘Latent Fragments’ From Craterus.Edwin Carawan - 2017 - Classical Quarterly 67 (2):400-421.
    The manuscript of Andocides' speechOn the Mysteriescontains a series of documentary inserts culminating in the decrees of Patroclides, Tisamenus and Demophantus. These decrees seem to fit their historical context and they are presented at length, with at least a few of the formalities that we would expect to find in the official record. Modern commentators have relied upon them as substantially genuine, allowing for the usual errors in transmission, but now their authenticity is contested. A close reading by Mirko Canevaro (...)

  • The Authenticity Of The Demophantus Decree.Alan H. Sommerstein - 2014 - Classical Quarterly 64 (1):49-57.
    Mirko Canevaro and Edward Harris, in their recent CQ article , have rejected, as forgeries or reconstructions of post-classical origin, all the laws and decrees appearing in the text of Andocides' speech On the Mysteries and purporting to be the documents which the speaker, at six points in that passage, directs the clerk to read out. I have no quarrel with their arguments for rejecting the documents presented as the decree of Patroclides , the decree of Tisamenus , and a (...)
