This chapter analyzes the impact of mobility on poleis and individuals in the Hellenistic period. It addresses two main issues: the reasons why people moved and how communities rendered themselves more (or less) attractive to potential mobile peoples. It focuses on the mobility of the elite and the interaction between their mobility and the communities.
