Harvard’s Center for Helenic Studies has published William C. West’s study of Greek public monuments on its open-access portal.

Greek Public Monuments of the Persian Wars is a catalog of the public monuments fifth-century Greeks erected to commemorate the wars. Prof. West originally completed the project as his Pd.D. dissertation, itemizing and categorizing each monument in Greek. In recent years, Prof. West translated his catalog into English.

The original version of Prof. West’s work lives in Murphey Hall, making a pilgrimage to Chapel Hill necessary to use the item. Through CHS’s open-access platform, the newly translated text promises to reach a wider audience than before.
