Sparta's Second Attic War

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on the Athenians, who were “broken in spirit” in the years after their humiliation at the hands of the Spartans and their allies. It describes how Athens' expanded its influence and domain when opportunity outside the Peloponnesus presented itself. It also discusses how Athenians established independent colonies, cleruchies, and agricultural outposts as soon as they had achieved victory at Cypriot Salamis. The chapter recounts Athenians' expulsion of the Histiaeans and seizure of holdings of Chalcis's wealthy Cavaliers. According to the phóros records, it also suggests that the Athenians's seizures of land occasioned a sharp reduction in the contributions demanded from the communities within the Delian League to which the cleruchies had been conveyed.

Keywords:   Athenians, Spartans, Peloponnesus, independent colonies, cleruchies, agricultural outposts, Cypriot Salamis, phóros records, Delian League
