In this comprehensive sourcebook, Ilias Arnaoutoglou presents a collection of ancient Greek laws, which are situated in their legal and historical contexts and are interpreted with relevant selections from Greek literature and epigraphical testimonies. A wide area of legislative activity in major and minor Greek city-states is covered, ranging from Delphoi and Athens in mainland Greece, to Gortyn in Crete, Olbia in South Russia and Aegean cities including Ephesos, Samos and Thasos.
The book is divided into three legislative areas: the household; the market-place; and the state. The author explores the significance of legislation in ancient Greece, the differences and similarities between ancient Greek legislation and legislators and their modern counterparts and also provides fresh translations of the legal documents presented.
