Eric Csapo / Peter Wilson
Published Online: 2015-11-15 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/tc-2015-0019


This chapter surveys evidence for the spread, in the fifth and fourth centuries BC, of drama and theatrical culture around the eastern Mediterranean from Sicily to Babylon and from the Black Sea to Cyrene. 116 sites are examined with some attention given to the chronological, social, political and festival context of the reception of theater and, where specifically attested, of drama.

Keywords:: Ancient Greek Drama; Regional Theater; Spread of Theater; Politics of Theater; Rural Dionysia
