Excerpt

As the bibliography indicates, it is now nearly a century since the first monograph on the general subject of Sicyon was published. Since then have appeared several studies which deal with matters especially pertinent to the present work. Some, however, are discussions that interpret special aspects of the subject; others were written at a time when their authors could not avail themselves of the light since thrown on many subjects of antiquity by the aid of philological studies or the stock of facts revealed by archaeological research. In consequence it seemed desirable to investigate all the material connected with ancient Sicyon and embody the results in a single monograph.

The study was undertaken at the suggestion of Professor David M. Robinson of the Johns Hopkins University, and my dissertation for the doctorate was written under his direction and presented in 1923. Since then it has been revised and the data brought down to date. To Professor Robinson I am much indebted for numerous suggestions, criticisms and corrections, for taking photographs and reading the proofs at the site of Sicyon itself.
