The birth of the Athenian laws
In the early 6th century B.C., social and political tensions had led Athens to the verge of collapse. Nearly all power was in the hands of a few influential families. The remaining population was in a state of unrest, with the poorest having to take loans secured against their own person and subsequently finding themselves reduced to slavery. Then, in 594/3 B.C., the Athenians elected Solon as archon (chief ruler), with their legislative powers to resolve the crisis. Solon’s reforms are considered to be one of the major stepping stones on the path to a democratic form of governance.
