This chapter examines the history of the Theran colony of Cyrene during the two centuries or so from its foundation about 630 bc to the end of the Battiad monarchy. It discusses how far politically it was similar to or differed from other contemporary Greek colonies. Its especially distinguishing feature is the long-lasting Battiad monarchy, which will be the central focus.
