    IG II2.2344 and the Size of Phratries in Classical Athens.Michael A. Flower - 1985 - Classical Quarterly 35 (1):232-235.
    Little is known about phratries in ancient Athens. The few surviving pieces of evidence, both literary and epigraphical, do not provide an adequate basis for a convincing reconstruction of most details. It may be possible, however, to say something more about the number and size, even if not about the organization and function, of phratries in the fifth and fourth centuries b.c. The purpose of this note is to show how IG II2.2344 is relevant to the question of phratries. It (...)

Panhellenism is here defined as the idea that the various Greek city-states could solve their political disputes and simultaneously enrich themselves by uniting in common cause and conquering all or part of the Persian empire. An attempt is made to trace the evidence for panhellenism throughout the fifth century by combining different (...)

    Simonides, Ephorus, and Herodotus on the Battle of Thermopylae.Michael A. Flower - 1998 - Classical Quarterly 48 (02):365-379.
    In adapting the story of the Great War to the taste of his own age Ephoros, himself a pupil of Isokrates and a professional historian, was led astray by the combined influences of rhetoric and rationalism; as neither the rationalism nor the rhetoric was of the best quality, the intrusion of both at this stage could have inflicted irreparable damage on the tradition of the war if the text of Herodotus had not survived to refute the inventions grafted on the (...)

  7. The Cambridge Companion to Xenophon.Michael A. Flower (ed.) - 2016 - Cambridge University Press.
    This Companion, the first dedicated to the philosopher and historian Xenophon of Athens, gives readers a sense of why he has held such a prominent place in literary and political culture from antiquity to the present and has been a favourite author of individuals as diverse as Machiavelli, Thomas Jefferson, and Leo Tolstoy. It also sets out the major problems and issues that are at stake in the study of his writings, while simultaneously pointing the way forward to newer methodologies, (...)
