This volume publishes the editiones principes of fragments of inscriptions found during excavations in the Athenian Agora between 1931 and 1967. These comprise parts of 100 decrees of the Athenian state and other political bodies and, while sometimes only a few words are preserved, the texts nevertheless provide some important insights into the workings of ancient law. Each of the inscriptions is illustrated and described, with a transcription of the legible letters and commentary.
