Excerpt from Election by Lot at Athens

This is the more to be regretted because it seems as though the discussion of the first point could not lead to any satisfactory conclusion. Our knowledge of the end of the 6th and the beginning of the 5th century is so fragmentary, that, unless some new source of information is discovered, we can do nothing but make clever guesses. On the other hand, an understanding of the use of the lot from the middle of the 5th century onwards is essential, if we are to form any true conception of the nature of the Athenian Democracy; and the great amount of contemporary material which we possess, both in books and inscriptions, ought to enable us at least to get somewhere near the truth.
