Delos, its Networks, Regionalism, and the Aegean World

Aegean Interactions

This chapter provides a brief overview of the history of Delos, with particular emphasis on the period of Independence (314–166 BC). It examines the image of the Delian ‘parasite’, and explains it as essentially the result of a negative approach towards the Delians’ reliance to outsiders. The chapter discusses the nature of the sources, and the importance of epigraphy. What allows us to write the history of Delos is the plethora of Delian inscriptions: inventories, accounts, and decrees, among others. The chapter then discusses network theory and regionalism as the two main methodological approaches employed in the book, and presents a summary of the four case studies discussed in the book.

Keywords:   regionalism, network theory, Hellenistic Delos, Delian epigraphy, Delian economy
