Overview

A collection of 12 essays that explore the identity of Ancient Greece as a nation of very different communities. The volume begins with a study of the continuity of Greek culture and society as shown by the ease with which Greeks identified their local deities with those in Hesiod and Homer. Other topics include: the relationship between population size and political strength in the Arkadian Poleis ; the reasons for the shifting location of the city of Miletos; whether Ancient Sparta was a Polis ; the political organisation of East Locris in the Classical period; the Chalcidic Peninsula and Thrace; the use of the word 'Polis' in the works of Xenophon, historians, Attic orators, inscriptions and in other Archaic and Classical sources. This useful history concludes with an index of literary sources, inscriptions and names.
