Description

Attic Inscriptions Online (AIO)is a website that makes available the inscriptions of ancient Athens and Attica in English translation. Launched in 2012 with translations of the 281 inscribed laws and decrees of Athens, 352/1-322/1 BC, edited as IG II3 1, 292-572. More translations (most recently those at Petworth House and at the British School at Athens) are gradually being added to the site, together with more information about the inscriptions and explanatory notes. The aim is to eventually include all the inscriptions of Athens and Attica (ca. 20,000 in total).

From the project website (accessed 2022-07-06):

Since it was launched AIO has been continuously expanded and developed. We usually release new material about four times a year. Releases typically include new site entries, updates to existing entries, and supporting academic papers (AIO Papers).

Since October 2017 AIO has been undertaking the systematic re-publication of all Attic inscriptions in the UK, in the context of an AHRC-funded project, Attic Inscriptions in UK Collections (AIUK). The new editions are published as AIUK Papers], accompanied by versions on the main site designed to be more accessible to non-specialists.

In 2020 we completed a programme of adding Greek texts to the site, especially where no up-to-date Greek text of an inscription is available elsewhere online in open access.

By early 2022 the number of inscriptions on the site exceeded 2000. We aim eventually to include all the inscriptions of Athens and Attica, over 20,000 in total, but it is likely to be a little while before we reach that goal. In the meantime, apart from UK Collections, we are giving priority to laws and decrees, dedications, and inscriptions or groups of inscriptions which are particularly useful for research and teaching.
