Wandering Greeks

Princeton University Press

This chapter focuses on the itinerants in Archaic Greece. Itinerants are differentiated from the economic migrants investigated in the previous chapter by virtue of the fact that they regularly moved from one place to another, some making only a brief stop, others staying a month or more. Some might have a home to which they periodically returned, others presumably did not. Even so, their lifestyle had points in common with that of the migrant, which is why it deserves inclusion in this study. The ubiquity of itinerants in the Greek world is a reflection of the relative scarcity of the human resource in the Mediterranean world.
