Chapter Summary

In a paper presented and published a couple of decades ago (1991), the author argues that the two principles of contact among the constituent parts of the greater Greek world in antiquity were religious and commercial. He took, as evidence for a minimal but general picture of both these mechanisms in the Hellenistic period, the testimony of two classes of inscriptions: the decrees of proxenia and the agonistic texts, especially the lists of victors at various sanctuary games. Both classes of document are available and can be utilised in the particular examination of contacts between Boiotia and the rest of the Greek world in Hellenistic times. In general all the documentation for the Boiotian artistic festivals has been assembled by Manieri (2009); this chapter concerns with just one type of documentation, effectively speaking the victor lists, and not only for the artistic or "musical" festivals, but also the athletic ones.

Keywords: agonistic texts; Boiotian artistic festivals; Greek world; Hellenistic-Roman times; proxenia decrees
