14 April 2021: In this release we publish new annotated translations of 17 decrees and other inscriptions from or relating to Eleusis (for a list see Publication 14 April 2021). This extends our coverage of the epigraphical record of the deme Eleusis (for an overview see I Eleusis 68), its local Dionysia (overview, I Eleusis 53, commemorating performances directed by Aristophanes and Sophokles) and the Eleusinian gene (on these topics see also Publication 15 December 2020). Included are two important Assembly decrees of the mid-late 2nd century BC, I Eleusis 237, which probably adapted Athenian weights and measures to Roman standards, and I Eleusis 229, honouring the demarch of Eleusis (new date).
