Draco's law on homicide is presented as more than a foundation for Athenian law: it was central to Athenian civic identity. Revenge-which the law tried to control but not to eliminate-was also vital to Athenian civic ethos, and Phillips identifies himself with those many scholars who see the courts as a means to pursue vengeance, not to end it. Draco's law was used in the fourth century "because the concept of private vengeance, sanctioned by custom and acknowledged in law, survived, adapted, and remained at the core of the Athenian psyche. Part I, chapters 1 through 4, first examines Draco's legislation, and then Athenian homicide law and practice in the fourth century. Chapter 1 considers the legislation of Draco, first in its historical context, and then with a close reading of the text as preserved in the Demosthenaic corpus.
