(p.319) Conclusions
Archaic and Classical Greek Sicily

Franco De Angelis

Oxford University Press

This chapter brings together all the conclusions from the individual chapters and relates them to previous conclusions to tell a new story about Greek Sicily. In it, we return to the more general question of the role of Greeks in the making of ancient Sicily. Edward Freeman argued in the 1890s that the ancient Greeks created our current image of ancient Sicily. That such an open-minded world historian singled out the ancient Greeks alone as having been behind Sicily’s success and character is what makes his statements about the role of Hellenism in making ancient Sicily the attractive model to test. Current evidence corroborates this view, and can stand if it includes the collaboration of native and other peoples. The chapter ends by considering the general role that social and economic questions can have in future studies of Greek Sicily and outlines some possible future directions.

Keywords:   Edward Freeman, Hellenism, future directions, world history, agency
