 ABSTRACTEMMA BUCKINGHAM: Delian Civic Structures: A Critical Reassessment(Under the direction of Monika Truemper)This paper reassesses the attributions of three buildings on the Greek island of Delos, GD22, GD 21 and GD 47, which have been identified as civic structures – the Prytaneion,Bouleuterion, and Ekklesiasterion. I examine the issues surrounding these attributionsand propose alternative identifications for GD 21 and GD 47, based on the date, physicalappearance, size, location, history, and epigraphic evidence for the structures. I suggestthat GD 21 served as a multifunctional hall and/or a seat of the sacred assemblies andmagistrates, while GD 47 functioned as the bouleuterion. GD 22, the Prytaneion, has been identified with a high degree of certainty, and so I reevaluate the location,development, and historical background of the building based on the sociopoliticalcontext of Delos and Athens, suggesting that the Prytaneion (as well as the Bouleuterion)would have mainly served the needs of the Delian inhabitants. iii
