The history of the Molossians features all too rarely in the textbooks. Yet the increase in relevant epigraphic documentation, and the quality of loving scholarly attention which it has recently been receiving, have combined to shed such extra light on the region's affairs and political articulation that it is becoming possible to recognize that it provides a valuable case study of the themes and preoccupations of the present volume. This chapter brings the evidence before a wider audience which may not be fully aware of recent and current work, especially that of Nicholas Hammond and Pierre Cabanes. It focuses on the 4th century bc rather than on Epirus in Pyrrhus' time or on its 3rd-century vicissitudes and the shift to republic c.232, since it seems to have been in the late 5th and the 4th centuries that the main work of political creativity in the region was being carried forward.
