  8. Pandering for the Greater Good? Senate, People, and Politics in Cicero’s de Lege Agraria 1 and 2.Brian Krostenko - 2021 - Polis 38 (1):108-126.
    Cicero’s first speeches as consul, de lege agraria I and II, delivered to the senate and the people respectively, are virtually identical in outline and broad argument. That allows the rhetorical technique of individual sections to be compared closely. This article uses such comparisons to probe the tactics and ideology of the speeches. In both Cicero’s choice of word and phrase might suggest that he is simply addressing his audiences as suits their stations. But a consideration of the circumstances of (...)

    Punishment, Stigma and Social Identities in Classical Athens.Janek Kucharski - 2021 - Polis 38 (1):21-46.
    Taking its cue from modern debates on the expressive function of punishment, this paper discusses the stigmatizing effect of penalties in classical Athens. It focuses on corporal punishment, which was discursively associated in the Athenian public discourse with slaves and other fringe groups of the citizen community, despite the fact that in reality, with only certain restrictions, it was meted out to all social tiers making up the polis-community. Unlike other penalties, those affecting the body were not only public, but (...)

    The Discourses of Identity in Hellenistic Erythrai: Institutions, Rhetoric, Honour and Reciprocity.Peter Liddel - 2021 - Polis 38 (1):74-107.
    Recent research in the field of New Institutionalist analysis has developed the view that institutions are grounded not only upon authoritative rules but also upon accepted practices and narratives. In this paper I am interested in the ways in which honorific practices and accounts of identity set out in ancient Greek inscriptions contribute towards the persistence of polis institutions in the Hellenistic period. A diachronic survey of Erythraian inscriptions of the classical and Hellenistic periods gives an impression of the adaptation (...)

    Dressing Like the Great King: Amerindian Perspectives on Persian Fashion in Classical Athens.S. Douglas Olson - 2021 - Polis 38 (1):9-20.
    This paper examines the phenomenon of individual Athenians adopting elements of Persian clothing, making use of exotic items such as gold and silver drinking vessels, and the like, by comparison to what I argue is a similar sort of contact and exchange involving the European fabric trade and evolving standards of dress and fashion in the Early Modern Atlantic. The ancient literary and archaeological sources discussed document the reaction of a relatively insignificant, marginal people to the dress practices of a (...)

    Religious Identity in Athenian Forensic Oratory: Public Cases of Eisangelia Trials.Eleni Volonaki - 2021 - Polis 38 (1):47-73.
    Attic orators skillfully deployed reference to ancestral cults, sacred laws, traditional rites and other types of religious actions to construct religious identity as a means of persuasion. The present chapter explores the use of a variety of forms of religious argumentation and addresses issues of religious identity in public cases of eisangelia. Emphasis is placed on the question of how orators reconstruct ideal forms of religious identity in their arguments; particularly, the main interest of this chapter lies in the techniques (...)
