Tribute and Syntely at Erythrai

From: Classical World
Volume 105, Number 4, Summer 2012
pp. 479-496 | 10.1353/clw.2012.0035



It has usually been assumed that the Ionian city of Erythrai lost control over its traditional dependencies on the Mimas peninsula during the period of the Delian League, since they appear on the quota lists as independent tributaries of Athens after a time of joint payment with the city. Contrary to this conclusion, the article argues that Erythrai maintained its dominance over the Mimas peninsula and that that evidence from the quota lists reveals the outcomes of negotiation of the tribute system by an important city on the frontier between two competing empires.
