Abstract

This second volume of AIUK contains the fifteen Attic inscriptions in the collection of the British School at Athens, most of which once belonged to the nineteenth-century philhellene, historian of modern Greece and resident of Athens, George Finlay. Though modest in size, the collection offers a rich variety of insights into the life of our best documented ancient Greek city between the fifth century BC and the third century AD. It also offers representative examples of three major genres of Attic inscription: two Assembly decrees (1, 2); five dedications or statue bases (3, 4, 5, 6, 7); and seven funerary monuments (9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15); in addition to a list of names, perhaps of donors, on a wall block (8). Three of the Attic funerary monuments, 9, 10 and 14, are on permanent display in the BSA entrance hall, and the remaining inscriptions are kept in the School’s museum collection.
