Lecture Two: Office and Accountability  

This lecture argues for the centrality of accountability to classical Greek ideas and practices of political office. The Thirty are again a key moment for making this case, this time in asking why they did not themselves hold any of the established offices that continued to be filled in Athens during their hegemony, and how accountability was re-established after their overthrow.
