Table of Contents: The Article in Post-Classical Greek

I found the table of contents for The Article in Post-Classical Greek, edited by Daniel King, thanks to Stephen Carlson. I have reproduced it below. There are some excellent looking pieces. I have always appreciated Mari Napoli’s research, in particular. I look forward to working through this volume in time.
