  • Classical Athens attracted numerous foreign guests and visitors, and for many of them the polis was more than just a stopover: as resident foreigners, they were a natural part of the cityscape. In an extensive study, Franziska Luppa systematically works on the characteristics that members of this population group carried both through individual preconditions and through Athenian attributions, and analyzes their influence on the lives and experiences of the resident strangers in Athens.
  • On the one hand, the studies show the remarkable heterogeneity of the group of resident foreigners in classical Athens , on the other hand, they trace the complex network of integration offers and exclusion requirements with which the Athenians did not simply rigidly determine the place of foreigners in the polis, but continuously negotiated.
  • Tags: acculturation, strangers, xenoi, Athens, society, integration, exclusion, classical period, population, polis history.
