Guest Blogger for the Day: Robin Waterfield

Does anyone out there know more about this than I do?

From John Montgomery’s introduction to his edited collection The State versus Socrates (Boston: The Beacon Press, 1954) [quite a fun collection of an earlier generation of scholars’ views on Socrates’ trial]:

Only a few years ago a Greek court tried to clear the national conscience by reversing the ancient conviction.

I’d appreciate knowing the details: which court, when, what prompted it – all that kind of thing.
