The agreement that resolved civil conflict at Athens in 403 BC became the paradigm for amnesty and national reconciliation, a method often praised and sometimes put into practice, from classical antiquity to the post-Soviet era. This study presents a new interpretation of the ancient agreement in its original setting and in view of the subsequent reconstruction of laws and democratic institutions at Athens. The study builds upon a complete collation of testimony in the ancient historians and speechwriters together with the surviving inscriptions, and it develops a new reading of the argumentation in which the evidence is embedded. The study will be published in book form, with an abridged version online. The book is addressed primarily to scholars in ancient law and politics but should also be useful to well-informed nonspecialists who turn back to the ancient parallels for perspective on conflict resolution.
