    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Aineias shows how a small city could withstand a siege in antiquity. The book is the oldest military textbook preserved from ancient Greece and provides a unique insight into the world of the fourth century BC beyond the great powers like Athens and Sparta: The focus is on a small polis with its men and women, citizens and foreigners, free men and slaves, officials and ordinary people, all of whom must stand together in a crisis.
