Abstract

This paper was originally written for inclusion in Decline: Decadence, Decay and Decline in History and Society, ed. William O'Reilly (Central European University Press, expected pub. 2017). A fully updated and revised version is now available under the title "The Popular Courts in Athenian Democracy," which I hope to publish that elsewhere. However, since the original version has been cited in a few places, I'll leave it archived here.

Keywords: Athenian assembly, Athenian courts, era of legal reform, demos, democracy
