The Athenian Acropolis as it appeared during the Classical period was the result of years of building following the Persian war using tribute money from poleis under the protection of the Delian league. William Dinsmoor, the famous historian of Greek architecture and one of the experts who directed the first reconstruction of the Athenian Acropolis, presents the epigraphical evidence for this building process in this series of papers divided by individual building. Included are sketches, transliterations, texts, translations, and commentaries on each epigraphic fragment. This piece is of great use to historians of Classical Athens and its building program, providing a counterpoint to the more usual (and later) literary sources used to discuss these famous buildings.
