Origins, funding and future development of AIO

This website was created by Stephen Lambert and launched in 2012 with translations of the 281 inscribed laws and decrees of Athens dating to 352/1-322/1 BC (IG II3 1, 292-572). Gradually, more translations are being added, together with more information about the inscriptions, explanatory notes and supporting academic papers (AIO Papers). Our aim is eventually to include all the inscriptions of Athens and Attica (ca. 20,000 in total). At the same time the design of the site is continuously being developed. This includes integration of AIO with other online resources (e.g. Greek texts, photographs), which is being taken forward in 2015 in collaboration with international partners in project TIGLIO.

AIO is delighted to acknowledge financial support from Cardiff University's School of History, Archaeology and Religion; the Department of History and Art History of Utrecht University; the Humboldt Foundation; and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. AIO is affiliated to the Europeana Eagle Project.
