The local history of hippias of Erythrai: Politics, place, memory, and monumentality

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Recent studies of local historiography in ancient Greece have overlooked the importance of Hippias of Erythrai, whose lone surviving fragment reveals complex processes of memory making and the politics of place. This article argues that Hippias should be understood as a participant in Early Hellenistic struggles between democracy and oligarchy, concluding with an exploration of how the historian's language interacts with the text and iconography of a Late Classical Athenian monument.
