Demos: Classical Athenian Democracy

Demos: Classical Athenian Democracy - A digital encyclopedia of classical Athenian democracy offering biographies, images, history, and arguments. Some of the content is in PDF format.

A few sample articles include Scythian Archers: policing Athens, Legislation under the Athenian Democracy, and A Brief Early History of Athenian Democracy.

From the site:

Our goal is to build a digital encyclopedia of classical Athenian democracy that will be useful to a wide audience. We hope to describe the history, institutions, and people of democratic Athens in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE, to publish the efforts of scholars to answer questions about Athenian democracy, and to invite you, our audience, to explore, discover, and judge for yourselves.
