Evidence for Athenian Democracy 

Christopher W. Blackwell, edition of January 24, 2003

· Introduction ·

Dēmos: Classical Athenian Democracy is a project of The Stoa, which is a consortium dedicated to promoting electronic publication in the humanities that is at once accessible to a wide audience and that meets the highest standards of quality. The goal of Dēmos is to describe Athenian Democracy of the 5th and 4th centuries BCE, how it worked, its institutions, and its important historical figures. Dēmos intends to allow all of its readers, whatever their background, to have access to the real evidence on which our knowledge of Athenian Democracy is based. In this way we hope to make the study of this important early democracy as democratic as possible.
