(p.141) 5 Fluid Hegemonies
Athens and the Cyclades

Brian Rutishauser

Oxford University Press

This chapter covers the early fourth century, which was a time of shifting hegemonies by various powers over the Cyclades region. Sparta, Athens, and Thebes all exercised naval power in the Aegean at various times, Athens most significantly with its Second Athenian League. The protection provided by a hegemon became important to the islanders after several crises occurred in the region, but most of the islands maintained good relations with Athens up to the end of the Social War, seen particularly in financial connections between the islanders and the temple of Apollo on Delos.

Keywords:   hegemonies, Sparta, Athens, Thebes, second athenian league, Social War, Apollo of Delos
