Dēmos: Classical Athenian Democracy

[First posted in AWOL 13 March 2012, updated 126April 2019]

Dēmos: Classical Athenian Democracy
Dēmos is a publication of The Stoa: a Consortium for Scholarly Publication in the Humanities, and has greatly benefited from the infrastructure, expertise, and friendship of that institution and everyone involved with it, especially Anne Mahoney and Ross Scaife. Dēmos would not exist without The Perseus Project and its editor-in-chief, Gregory Crane. This project has also profited from an association with Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies, under the wise direction of Gregory Nagy. Hugh Cayless, of OASIS and the UNC Digital Library Project, is responsible for writing the Transcoder that allows this site to display Greek; we are deeply indebted to him. Thomas Martin and Neel Smith of The College of the Holy Cross have been instrumental throughout the lifetime of the project. The earliest work on Dēmos was supported by grants from Furman University and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
