Nomothesia e amministrazione finanziaria: Frammenti epigrafici di ‘costituzionalizzazione’ e sviluppo istituzionale nell’Atene di IV secolo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

This article tackles the problem of the changes to the merismos – the law that in the fourth century allocated Athenian funds to various treasuries and magistrates – ordered by decree in IG II3 1 327, 452 e 355, yet to be ratified by the nomothetai. By analysing these inscriptions within the wider context of Athenian finances and lawmaking, the article proposes a new reconstruction of how these changes were institutionally legitimised, and of the effects that this legitimation had on the role of the nomothetai and on the development of Athenian financial administration. In doing so, the article uses methodologies from New Institutionalism and assesses the strengths and weaknesses of traditional approaches to Greek institutional history.
