Full text not available from this repository.


The Phratries of Attica provides the first comprehensive account in English of a key institution in ancient Athens: the Attic phratries. These hereditary groups of citizens, linked to one locale or more in Attica, played a crucial role in regulating access to Athenian citizenship. The author concentrates on the evidence, much of it epigraphical, for the period 450-250 B.C.E., but he also considers the role of the phratry in the reforms of Cleisthenes and examines the institution's origins and its probable demise in the second century B.C.E.
