    The Athenian Archons of the Third and Second Centuries before Christ
    Book Description:

    This work provides a list of the archons and their years of service from 307/6 B.C. to 96/95 B.C., along with unallocated archons. "My predecessors in this work," William Scott Ferguson notes, "could claim to do no more than assign an approximate year to five-sixths of their material; whereas I have here attempted to determine the precise year in all cases in which the secretary is known, and then, with the help of archons fixed in this way, to approximate in the cases in which the secretary is not known. The resulting list can be only provisional, for every secretary hereafter found will have a two-fold value. It will add another archon to the list and will at the same time eliminate a possible year for archons already known."

    Dionysius of Halicarnassus¹ assigns to these archons the positions they occupy in this list and with him Diodorus Siculus² and the Parian Chronicle,³ as far as they go, agree. The only problem in connection with them is to decide whether or no there is one lacking between Euktemon and Philippos.

    The presumption that there is such a lacuna rests upon the following statement of Dionysius⁴ : έπєí δ’ άναυkαíα πρόѕ γαῦγα ῆ ϒὣν χρóvωv διάγνωσιϛ, Ϯoύϛ ’ Aθήνɲσιν...
