Chapter Summary

All known importers are situated in Greece, the Aegean and Asia Minor, which reveals a definite periphery-core relationship in the grain trade. Corinth was probably the greatest importer in the Peloponnese and it is valid to assume that a large part of the imports mentioned as going to the Peloponnese were destined for it. The use of Solons law is a double-edged knife. The employment of curses in sixth-century Athens shows nothing more than that the legal formula is archaic and not unique to Teos. Klazomenai is one of the few cities that had a regular and regulated grain supply from abroad. Methone was the recipient of a grant by Athens of a regulated import of grain from the Black Sea in the 420s.
