The popularity of Orpheus the Thracian throughout the Greek world attests to the prominence of the Odrysians among their Greek and Macedonian neighbors in the fifth century B.C.. Archibald analyzes the cultural amalgam the Odrysian governing elite formed from native, Persian, and Greek elements, and provides new data on the external relations of Athens, Thasos, and Macedon in the classical and early Hellenistic periods.ContentsList of Figures List of Plates Abbreviations Pt.
