This, Part 3A of our publication of the Attic inscriptions in the British Museum, contains new editions of the ten decrees of “Other Bodies” in the collection, i.e. bodies other than the Council and Assembly. They include three of the five known decrees of the deme Piraeus, all of which were acquired in Athens by Richard Chandler in 1765-6 and donated to the Museum by the Society of Dilettanti in 1785; three enactments of Hellenistic voluntary associations; a Hellenistic decree of the Athenian community of Myrina on Lemnos; a fragmentary inscribed letter to Hadrian or Antoninus Pius; the beginning of a decree of the world-wide itinerant association of theatrical professionals dating to the reign of Antoninus Pius; and one of the very few known inscribed decrees of the Areopagos, dating to 195/6 AD.
