Aristotle: The Athenian Constitution, v.1, 27 June 2008.
Aristotle:The Athenian Constitution
Translated by Sir Frederic G. Kenyon (1891)
This treatise charts the development of the Athenian Constitution then explores its characteristics.
It is an unusual work because it is not part of the Corpus Aristotelicum (the traditional list of Aristotle’s works) because the text was lost for millennia. A copy was rediscovered in the Egyptian desert in 1890, bought by the British Museum and promptly translated into English by Frederick Kenyon.
A few scholars claim that we work is actually by a student of Aristotle, though most think that he wrote it. It is a significant discovery because it contains previously unknown material about the Athenian constitution.
The text is incomplete and starts in the middle of a sentence.
