Eleusis and Athens offers a new text and detailed commentary on two account-inventories for a major panhellenic sanctuary (Demeter) during the final decade of the fifth century BC. In addition to the publication of inscriptions, the accompanying commentary provides a wide array of information regarding the daily operations of a religious sanctuary and argues for a re-dating of the First-Fruits decree and the Epistatai decree to the 430s.
