Greek Slave Systems in their Eastern Mediterranean Context, c.800-146 BC

David M. Lewis

  • Presents the first detailed study of Greek slavery in relation to non-Greek systems of slavery in the Eastern Mediterranean world, setting its analysis in a much broader geographical and cultural context than previous studies
  • Argues for a revised understanding of Greek slavery as a complex mosaic of regional systems and also for a new model for the development of slavery in the Greek world between 800 and 400 BC
  • Articulates a robust methodology for studying ancient slavery in comparative perspective, incorporating the legal aspects of slavery and the different appropriations of slave language in social and political metaphors
