About this Item

First Edition. viii, 83 pp; plates, fig. (in pocket at rear). Original wrappers. Very Good+. University of California Publications: Classical Studies, Vol. 3. 'More than thirty years ago, when I was reading Antiphon's speeches for homicide trials, I found that there existed no satisfactory account in English of the Athenian legal procedures involved, and I therefore tried to provide one (Athenian Homicide Law in the Age of the Orators [Mahcnester, 1963]). I can now see some weaknesses in that account, but at least in one respect it was a success: it drew attention to the interest of the subject, and provoked a good many other people to try to improve on what I had written. A very important contribution was made by R. S. Stroud, Drakon's Law on Homicide (Berkeley, 1968); he studied afresh the reinscription of the homicide law (now IG i.3 104) and achieved some significant new readings' (Douglas MacDowell, Classical Review 47.2, 1997, 384f). [a.c.]. Bookseller Inventory # 16516
