Example text

The Athenian Agora housed the executive offices of government as well as commercial interests, and the prytaneion, the sacred hearth of the polis. The Athenian prytaneion served three main roles: it housed the cult of Hestia and the city’s symbolic fire (religious groups set out from here and colonists took fire to found new cities abroad). It also contained one or more rooms for dining. In the fifth-century the prytaneis, the executive committee of the boule, did not, despite their name, dine here but in the tholos near to the boule (Wilkins 2000:175).

Xenophon remarks that many of these metics are barbarians from Lydia, Phrygia, Syria and other remote regions (Vect. ); however, grave stelai from Athens demonstrate that freeborn metics were primarily Greeks from the Aegean and the colonies (Isager and Hansen 1975: 69). Non-Athenians (even if they were Greek) were not allowed to own property in Athens, and as a result this group would have formed a highly itinerant workforce forced to share rooms in synoikiai (multi-occupancy houses), take lodgings in inns, or sleep rough.

Much like drinkers, women are regularly split into two categories, wife and whore, and the majority of contemporary scholarship does not allow for any blurring or grey areas in their categorisation (Keuls 1985; Pomeroy 1975). However, where a blurring of lines would have occurred would be in the realm of female drinking practices either at home, during festivals, or in the kapeleion. Sanctions on women’s drinking can be partly explained by Classical notions of the physical differences between the sexes.
