This is the first ever documented study of the 1,035 identifiable Greek city states (poleis) of the Archaic and Classical periods (c.650-325 BC). Previous studies of the Greek polis have focused on Athens and Sparta, and the result has been a view of Greek society dominated by Sophokles', Plato's, and Demosthenes' view of what the polis was. This study includes descriptions of Athens and Sparta, but its main purpose is to explore the history andorganization of the thousand other city states.The main part of the book is a regionally organized inventory of all identifiable poleis covering the Greek world from Spain to the Caucasus and from the Crimea to Libya. This inventory is the work of 47 specialists, and is divided into 46 chapters, each covering a region. Each chapter contains an account of the region, a list of second-order settlements, and an alphabetically ordered description of the poleis. This description covers such topics as polis status,territory, settlement pattern, urban centre, city walls and monumental architecture, population, military strength, constitution, alliance membership, colonization, coinage, and Panhellenic victors.The first part of the book is a description of the method and principles applied in the construction of the inventory and an analysis of some of the results to be obtained by a comparative study of the 1,035 poleis included in it. The ancient Greek concept of polis is distinguished from the modern term `city state', which historians use to cover many other historic civilizations, from ancient Sumeria to the West African cultures absorbed by the nineteenth-century colonializingpowers. The focus of this project is what the Greeks themselves considered a polis to be.

"Reflecting the innovative work of the Copenhagen Polis Centre's 2004 inventory of Archaic and Classical Greek city-states, Hansen's "shotgun method" for reconstructing and estimating the overall size and local distribution of the Greek population challenges the long-standing opinion that the majority of ancient Greeks lived a rural, subsistent life"--Provided by publisher.

Governmental Intervention In Foreign Trade In Archaic And Classical Greece

Trade was a necessity in the ancient Greek world, yet the prevalent scholarly view is that Greek states intervened in foreign trade only rarely and sporadically. This book studies four necessary commodities, gold, silver, ship-building timber and grain, from production through export to import. Through the re-evaluation of known evidence and the presentation of new avenues of research, the book shows that Greek and non-Greek governments in the archaic and classical periods intervened and involved themselves greatly in foreign trade. The book offers the student of the Greek economy a fresh perspective on state intervention in trade and the ways in which intervention worked in the Greek world.

Monarchische Herrschaft ist im Altertum omnipräsent. Eine systematische epochen- und kulturvergleichende Untersuchung des Phänomens existiert bislang aber nicht. Der Band schließt diese Lücke. 25 Beiträge, die von ausgewiesenen Spezialisten verfasst sind, nehmen die Alleinherrschaft von Ägypten und dem Alten Orient über die griechisch-römische Antike bis in die Spätantike, das Frühmittelalter und die frühislamische Zeit in den Blick. Vergleichend wird das alte China betrachtet, und ein weiterer Beitrag eröffnet die rezeptionsgeschichtliche Perspektive.

Der Gründungsmythos unseres Kontinents ist unauflöslich mit der sagenumwobenen griechischen Insel Kreta verbunden: In Gestalt eines weißen Stiers entführt der verliebte Göttervater Zeus die phönizische Königstochter Europa über das Meer und setzt sie erst wieder an der Küste Kretas ab. Sie gebiert ihm drei Söhne – Minos, Rhadamanthys und Sarpedon –, die ihrerseits als bedeutende Gestalten der griechischen Mythologie auftreten. Vom Namen des Minos, der als König auf Kreta herrscht, leitet sich jener der minoischen Hochkultur ab (3000–1450 n. Chr.), deren reiches archäologisches Erbe noch heute auf Kreta zu bewundern ist. Die Paläste der Minoer werden schließlich von mykenischen Griechen eingenommen. Doch auch ihre Herrschaft versinkt gegen Ende des 2. Jt. n. Chr. in schriftloses Dunkel, ehe sich seit dem 8. Jh. n. Chr. eine neue Kultur in einer Vielzahl von Gemeinden mit differenzierter Gesellschaftsstruktur und bald auch einem entwickelten Rechtswesen herausbildet. Auch wenn die Vorherrschaft einzelner Städte auf Kreta in den folgenden Jahrhunderten mehrfach wechselt und schließlich die Insel unter den Römern – nicht zum ersten und auch nicht zum letzten Mal – zum Objekt einer Fremdherrschaft wird, so bleibt sie doch stets ein bedeutender Faktor der antiken Welt. Kretas wechselvolle Ereignisgeschichte und seine kulturgeschichtliche Vielfalt läßt Angelos Chaniotis in diesem Buch wieder lebendig werden.

In the chaotic decades after the death of Alexander the Great, the world of the Greek city-state became deeply embroiled in the political struggles and unremitting violence of his successors’ contest for supremacy. As these presumptive rulers turned to the practical reality of administering the disparate territories under their control, they increasingly developed new cities by merging smaller settlements into large urban agglomerations. This practice of synoikism gave rise to many of the most important cities of the age, initiated major shifts in patterns of settlement, and consolidated numerous previously independent polities. The result was the increasing transformation of the fragmented world of the small Greek polis into an urbanized network of cities. Drawing on a wide array of archaeological, epigraphic, and textual evidence, City and Empire in the Age of the Successors reinterprets the role of urbanization in the creation of the Hellenistic kingdoms and argues for the agency of local actors in the formation of these new imperial cities.

This volume collects new, revised, and expanded articles about Aristotle's Politics by renowned classical scholar Mogens Herman Hansen. By addressing old controversies, and treating issues that have been ignored or neglected, Hansen sheds new lights on a range of issues of paramount importance for understanding the Politics: Aristotle's view of democratic freedom and political freedom as a value in itself; Aristotle’s silence as to the numerous federal states in the contemporary Hellenic polis world; the sixfold model of constitutions and the alternative model according to which all constitutions are either democracies or oligarchies or a mixed form of oligarchy and democracy. In a final article he shows that Aristotle took a positive view of the mixed forms of democracy, in particular an indirect form of democracy in which the power of the people was restricted to electing the magistrates and calling them to account whereas all political decisions were left to be made by the elected magistrates.

By bringing these articles within the covers of a single volume, Mogens Herman Hansen’s writings on an important subject will be more conveniently available to students, scholars, and general readers interested in Aristotle’s Politics.

Mogens Herman Hansen, emeritus reader in Ancient Greek at the University of Copenhagen, now associated with The Royal Library in Copenhagen, is a leading authority in Athenian democracy and the Greek City-State. He is a member of the British Academy and the Danish Academy for Sciences and Letters. He was formerly the Director of The Copenhagen Polis Centre 1993-2005.
