This volume is the first comprehensive study and catalogue of the some 175 extant allotment plates. It includes more than 300 drawings and photographs, most of which have not been published before. Through an exhaustive analysis of the surviving examples, the author demonstrates that their form underwent several alterations. These alterations provide evidence for certain otherwise unattested constitutional reforms relating to the Athenian courts and the selection of magistrates. The result, apart from a dependable and fully illustrated record of the name plates, is a contribution to our understanding of the development and machinery of Athenian radical democracy.
