IG II2 2318–2325 represent the most substantial surviving body of evidence for the institutional history of the Athenian dramatic festivals from their establishment at the end of the 6th century BCE to their disappearance sometime in the mid- to late 100s. Millis and Olson offer a completely updated text of the inscriptions, based on a close study of the stones themselves; detailed explanations of the restorations of the dimensions and organization of the original records, with numerous redatings and the like; and new — and in some cases radically different — reconstructions of the monuments on which they were inscribed. The volume also includes substantial interpretative essays on each set of records, a full epigraphic and prosopographic commentary, and several indices.

This book explores the territorial expansion of the Thessalian League ca. 196-27 BCE, the development of the state religion of the League, and the tension between regional political identity and local cult tradition.
This collection of eighteen papers makes wide-ranging original contributions to the study of the inscribed laws and decrees of the city of Athens, 352/1-322/1 BC, laying the groundwork for the author’s new edition of these inscriptions, IG II³ 1, 2.
