This chapter examines the civic finances of Athens, and in particular focuses on the contributions that individuals and especially Athenian citizens made within the institutions of the polis. The famous epidosis (subscription) of the archonship of Diomedon is analysed to illustrate the measured respect and dependence that existed between the community of Athenians and its benefactors among the citizen body and resident foreigners.

Keywords:   Attica, epidosis, Diomedon, civic finances, Athenian polis, defence
