Ronald Stroud is an extraordinary scholar of Greek history, inscriptions and archaeology. An inspirational teacher, he has been a benefactor to all who work in these areas through his many years meticulously editing the indispensible annual supplement of newly discovered and newly studied inscriptions (Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum). A comprehensive, balanced use of the ancient historians, inscriptions and archaeology to understand ancient society is a goal sought by many but rarely achieved with the sureness, learning and elegance of Dr. Stroud. His greatest contributions have been the publication of Athenian laws on stone and the excavation of the sanctuary of the goddess Demeter at Corinth. Presently Klio Distinguished Professor of Classical Languages and Literature Emeritus, Dr. Stroud has been affiliated with the University of California, Berkeley since earning his Ph.D. from the university in 1965. His published works include Drakon's Law on Homicide (1968); The Axones and Kyrbeis of Drakon and Solon (1979); The Athenian Grain-Tax Law of 374/3 B.C. (1998); and The Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore: Architecture and Topography (1998).
