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.

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
