This chapter summarizes the main contribution of this study. On the basis of recent anthropological work on broadened notions of kinship and sociology of emotions and ethnicity, it suggests a new typology and a new theoretical basis for intercommunal kinship in the ancient Greek world. Also, through the lens of kinship, it provides a new appreciation of Thucydides’ historical interpretations and authorial ambition and interaction with tradition.
