Chapter 7 discusses the Athenian criminal justice system, attitudes to violence and crime, sexual violence and property crime and disputes. Section 7.2 discusses violent crime and the response of Athenian law to it within the wider context of attitudes to violence, to the extent that these are detectable in our sources. I agree with those who believe that the Athenians channeled confrontations through the court system and other competitive activities, like sports. Section 7.3 discusses the uniquely Greek concept of hybris as a legal procedure. Here I argue that the graphe hybreos remained a largely theoretical possibility. The next section discusses the nonviolent resolution of disputes through arbitration and links it to the wider ideology of the Democratic Constitution. Section 7.5 deals with sexual violence and touches upon the lengthy discussion on rape and sexual assault. The final section touches upon the vast array of private lawsuits following property disputes.
