This is the first lexicon of all identifiable Greek city states of the Archaic and Classical periods (c.650-325 BC). During this time, the eastern Mediterranean was dominated by Greeks who shared an identity based on language, religion, and traditions; however, the Greek world was divided politically into some 1,500 city states, each consisting of an urban center with its immediate hinterland. This book contains descriptions of 1,035 of these city states, organized region by region.
