Chapter Summary

Thessalian League theoroi traveled far and wide to represent the League in international cult contexts. There is no hint of participation in the cults of Athena Itonia or Zeus Eleutherios by new League members, the non-tetradic perioikoi, and this fact mirrors the political leadership of the Thessalian League at this time. The religious history of Ainis in the later Hellenistic and Roman periods indicates the continued vibrancy of the individual religious traditions of the Thessalian ethne. Imagined Ainian pre- and proto-histories continued to develop into the Imperial era. In the logic of the procession, Ainis and the Ainianes are simultaneously Thessalian and more elect than the Thessalians; a beautiful synthesis, and one at which our laconic Hellenistic inscriptions may point to in the case of other Thessalian ethne.

Keywords:Ainianes; Ainis; Thessalian league
