Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled Polis and Personification in Classical Athenian Art presents the catalogue for individual works-all art works, extant or attested by literary sources, from 480 to 322 BCE, created by or for Athenians, that contain personifications of entities of political significance. The works are divided into sub-catalogues according to the medium in which they were created, and are ordered chronologically within those categories. It provides an approximate range of dates for most works but a specific date for those that can be securely dated on the basis of written primary evidence, such as inscriptions. Because the Athenian calendar year began in the middle of the Julian calendar year that are used now, an Athenian year would cross two of our years, and must be expressed therefore with two years.

Keywords:Athenian year; classical Athenian art; literary sources
