The presence of slavery in the Laws has puzzled anddistressed many of Plato's admirers. However, beforepassing judgment on Plato's attitude toward slavery, we mustfirst have a clear idea of the legal status of the slaveunder Plato's law, and compare it with the slave's positionunder Greek law of Plato's day. This work sets out to dojust that, as well as provides a good account of Greek law,much of which has been lost over the course of history.
