It has even given cause to the rise of two opposite academic traditions: those following Numa Fustel de Coulanges (La cité antique, 1864), who stress the character of the polis as a community that was bound first and foremost by religion and ritual; and those who propel, with Max Weber (Die Stadt, 1921), a concept that views the occidental city as focal point of political, social, and economic relations. Eventually, so Weber's argument went, this came to define the main characteristic of statehood in the West.

Fortunately, these are criteria that can be traced in our evidence. On the basis of material cultural assemblages, Ian Morris (1998a) has identified four cultural areas—central Greece; northern Greece; western Greece; and Crete —which persisted from the eleventh century through to the sixth. At the same time, however, it is important not to exaggerate the isolation or introspection of Greek communities, especially from the ninth century onwards: goods, information, ideas, and practices were freely exchanged between neighboring regions (Snodgrass 1986).

The chances to correct this imbalance are limited. The question of whether the evidence from Athens, in terms of content, is either exceptional or paradigmatic is a different matter, and, to be sure, a treacherous one. In this sense, this Companion considers itself distinctly Greek, rather than Athenian, despite the heavy weight that is pulled by Athenian government throughout. Greek government is a phenomenon sui generis. All the while, its inherent qualities as a universal paradigm that has inspired political agents and thinkers in all ages are undiminished.
