This chapter presents a summary of the preceding chapters. The book has covered these topics: grain supply; warfare, in particular its impact on the countryside; institutions (army, magistracies, politicians); and demography, and has tried to offer a contextual approach. It has drawn together these themes and considered how the economies of the post-classical polis of Athens had to adapt to the new conditions of the early Hellenistic era. Thus, this book is a case study of how some economic structures worked in the post-Classical polis.

Keywords:   Athenian polis, Hellenistic period, Athens, warfare, military command, Attica
