“There was a great deal of litigation in Athens. The rise of the Athenian empire in the middle of the fifth century b.c.e. resulted in a proliferation of cases, as the increase in population, wealth, and trade gave rise to more disputes, and the jurisdiction of the courts was expanded to include some suits involving citizens of subject states. The courts were in session about two hundred days a year, and could hear anywhere from four to upwards of forty cases in a day, depending on the type of case,” says the Oxford International Encyclopedia of Legal History.
