Un’ area di frontiera: La Bitinia dall’età arcaica all’ età ellenisticaFerdinando Ferraioli
This book presents a study of Bithynia from the Archaic to the Hellenistic period. It is organized in two parts, divided chronologically by the expedition of Alexander the Great to Asia and the subsequent foundation of the Hellenistic kingdom of Bithynia. The first part deals with the main problems relating to the Greek foundations in this geographical area (Astakos, Kalchedon, Kios, Myrleia and Olbia) and the regional influence of the great powers (Athens, Sparta, Persia) in the late Archaic and Classical period. Ample space is given to the non-Greek presence in the area, examining the issues relating to the satrapy of Phrygia. In the second part, the focus is on the Hellenistic kingdom of Bithynia, whose formation profoundly modifies the political and social balances present in the area in the previous period. Finally, an appendix is dedicated to a short exposition concerning the monetary issues of the kings of Bithynia.
