This chapter focuses on Aiolian communities and two interrelated episodes in the History: firstly, the first revolt of the island of Lesbos in the North-Eastern Aegean; and, secondly, the episode of Plataia in Boiotia and its clash with its mother-city Thebes. Here the scope of discussion widens, also encompassing kinship relations of the relatedness type, such as panhellenic kinship and the specially intimate relationship between Athens and Plataia. Through close attention to the role of myth in the shaping of perceptions and claims of the present, and vice-versa, and to discourse and narrative, the complexity of intercommunal kinship is explored in the quadrangle Plataia–Thebes–Sparta–Athens.

Keywords:   xyngeneia, relatedness, hatred, panhellenic kinship, myth, Persian Wars, memory, dorianization, ionianization, Atticism
