This chapter examines the history of the Islanders’ League (koinon ton nesioton), a federal organization centred on Delos, from the late fourth until the middle of the third century. It discusses the evidence of structure, key officials, and membership. The main source of evidence for the history of the League is a number of key decrees that the League produced and published on Delos, including the Nicouria decree. The chapter proposes that the Islanders’ League is the expression of a strong regional island identity, and emphasizes the islanders’ own agency in the processes of negotiation of power in the heavily contested space of the third-century Aegean.

Keywords:   Islanders’ League, epigraphy, regionalism, Ptolemies, Aegean Sea, Nicouria decree
