Eucrates’ Decree Against Tyranny
The Athenian law (or decree) against tyranny, approved in 337-336 BC at Eucrates’s suggestion, was largely studied and produced several interpretations. The law guaranteed the immunity of the tyrannicide and stopped the activities of the Areopagus, if the democracy was overthrown by a tyranny. This measure was approved when Philip controlled Greece after his military success at Chaeronea (338 BC) and the Peace of Corinth (337 BC).
