Chapter Summary

The history of Epicnemidian Locris throughout the Classical period (480-323) was marked, as in other periods, not just by the ambitions of its neighbours, but also, given the geopolitical situation in the region, by the conflicts for hegemony between the major Greek powers: Sparta, Athens, Boeotia and finally Macedonia. Together with the conflicts and relations with their neighbours and the interference of the Greek hegemonic powers, the relationship with Opuntian Locris, the other region of Eastern Locris to the east of Mt. Cnemis, was the third fundamental element for understanding the history of Epicnemidian Locris in the fifth and fourth centuries bc. The importance of this relationship is studied in the second part of this chapter. A region involved in maritime transport and trade, the data reveal that it was a relatively stable and consolidated society, open to outside cultural influences.
