 Alcibiades Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
Originally friendly to Sparta, he subsequently became the leader of the war party in opposition to Nicias, and after the peace of 421 BC he succeeded by an unscrupulous trick in duping the Spartan ambassadors, and persuading the Athenians to conclude an alliance (420 BC) with Argos, Elis, and Mantineia.
On the failure of Nicias in Thrace (418 BC-417 BC) he became the chief advocate of the Sicilian expedition, seeing an opportunity for the realization of his ambitious projects, which included the conquest of Sicily, to be followed by that of Peloponnesus and possibly of Carthage (though this seems to have been an afterthought).
On his return to Athens after these successes he was welcomed with unexpected enthusiasm (407 BC); all the proceedings against him were cancelled, and he was appointed general with full powers.

Although the archon's name Euthynus appears twice in the decree and we know that Euthynus was an archon in 426/5 BC, until recently this was not considered to be the date of the decree because the consistent use of a three-barred form of sigma in the inscription seemed to indicate an earlier date.
For this reason I have re-examined the letterforms used in 5th (and early 4th) century Attic inscriptions, paying particular attention to the letterforms of numeral signs for staters and the flexibility of usage of some letterforms such as nu and upsilon with a stem, where clear changes are hard to recognize.
The date of the decree seems to fit better in the 420s BC when Ionic orthography began to be common in Athens.

The surface of the stone has been severely eroded by its later reuse as a threshold block, but the stoichedon pattern of the lettering makes it possible to locate where letters that have been damaged must once have stood.
The dating of this inscription has a particular importance because the inscription uses letter forms (rho with a tail, as in upper case R, and sigma formed with 3 bars) that have widely been assumed to be diagnostic for dating other Athenian inscriptions before the mid-440s.
The consequences of this dating for reconstructions of Athenian imperial history in the fifth century remain fully to be evaluated.
