Abstract

Ancient sources made only ambiguous references to a building program proposed by Demetrius of Phalerum during his ten-year government. If we are not able to single out any coherent intervention on Athens city planning, nevertheless several laws proposed by Demetrius aiming at reaching a new political balance between the élite and the demos had an impressive impact on Athenian landscape. The article analyses the influence exercised by Demetrius’ decrees on the political landscape of Athens and its legacy to the Hellenistic city.
