A LOST CONTINET: THE POLITICAL COMMUNITIES OF ANCIENT THRACE
Languages of publication
The tiny community of Drys in the Samothracian peraia on the mainland of the north-east Aegean provides a case study for examining the relationship between this entity and its neighbours, both within the network of Samothracian outposts, and beyond into the interior of Thrace. The survival of an honorary inscription from Zone, mentioning the community of the Dryitai, allows a broader understanding of the relationship between Drys as a documented and constituted political entity and its relevance as a model for how Thracian settlements of the interior may be reconsidered in the light of recent field study and historical research.
