This chapter explores the geographic setting of the Cyclades and establishes criteria for defining which Aegean islands were included in this region in antiquity as well as the criteria for including them in this study. This chapter also discusses evidence for trade routes through the Cyclades and possible models for understanding the development of island communities, including peer-polity interaction and early state modules. The chapter also outlines the various types of evidence used in the book, including literary sources, epigraphy, numismatics, and archaeological survey.

Keywords:   geographic, trade, peer-polity interaction, early state modules, epigraphy, numismatics, survey
