Publication, both in print and online, of the Greek texts of extant laws from ancient Crete, along with translations and commentaries. (12 months)

More than 150 inscriptions containing laws or fragments of laws survive from the island of Crete. Written on stone between ca. 650 and 350 BCE, they are very important for scholars of Greek law and Greek history, as well as to historians, anthropologists, and legal historians more generally. But they are currently in accessible to non-specialists. We propose to combine our interests in law (MG), and in epigraphy (the study of inscriptions) and history (PP) to produce a collection of these laws -- Greek texts, translations, and commentaries -- that is accessible to all these potential users. We will also include 6-8 essays on these laws in relation to Greek history and law.
