Fresh update on "greece" discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"8 12 in Paris 7 12 here in London, our Pope Francis has completed a visit to Cyprus, having warned that the world can not keep quiet about a culture of indifference towards migrants. Acutely aware of just how political his role has now become the Pope said it was his responsibility to help open eyes to the problem. I'm joined now by Lydia Emanuel, who's an Athens based reporter for the U.S. public radio show the world. Good morning, Lydia. Hi there. Good morning. So we now have Pope Francis is left now. Heading off to Greece at the weekend. But what exactly was his achievement in Cyprus at the end of last week? He seemed to stir hearts and minds, didn't he? Yeah, that's right. So the Pope is actually wrapping up his cypress and Greece trip today he will be departing for math and later this morning. But really the whole point of this visit as you, as you mentioned, was to number one draw attention to the suffering that migrants and refugees face in Cyprus and in Greece. And he also had he wanted to give a warning about the rise of populism and nationalism in these countries and around the world. So we saw him in Cyprus in both sides in Greece, he met with asylum seekers in both instances. You know, he had some quite emotional meetings with refugees, asylum seekers, migrants, he committed to taking 50 from Cyprus approximately 50 people and from what I'm hearing from sources on the ground there who are working with his team. They're now in the process of relocating 50 migrants to Italy. So this was one thing. And then he, on the second leg of his trip, he came to Athens and the lesbos island, which, as you, as you probably know, this was one of the Aegean islands that was at the center of the so called migration crisis in 2015, 2016 when a million people came to Europe through Greece. And Pope Francis had visited the island back in 2016 when people were living in the notorious moria refugee camp, the really overcrowded camp that was built for about 3000 people in upwards of 20,000 people were living there at the height of it in really horrible squalid conditions and at that time he also took back two Syrian families with families 12 people with him to Rome. And this time around, he offered some of the same messages of solidarity of love and but of course the context is quite different today than it was back in 2016 here in Greece. The context is different, but the message was still the same Pope Francis always tries to ask the separates to embrace their history as a crossroads for different cultures. And it's impossible now to do that when you have an island which is small, but increasingly placed under pressure with migrants and there is added pressure of tension between the north and the south, which has been around for nearly 5 decades. That's right. So I mean, Cyprus has such a long and complicated history, but essentially it's an island that's been the divided since the 70s and even before that, but it's been divided into two parts. The Greek Cypriot part in the Turkish Cypriot part, the Greek government there is the one that's internationally recognized and there's a UN buffer zone that literally divides the two sides. And so people have been on this people who, for decades, lived, lived together in the same neighborhoods, have been divided for decades. And the Pope's part of the Pope's message there was was a message of unity in an attempt to try to foster unity between the two sides. But as you say, have been, have been divided now whether the Pope's visit. You know, there have been many several UN backed efforts to try to have peace talks between the two sides to come up with some sort of agreement between the two sides. That hasn't happened despite the effort of hundreds, thousands of people and many, many years worth of work. Whether the Pope's message of unity is going to change things, I'm not particularly optimistic. But it was striking to see the Pope offers some really strong words and some really strong criticism on this issue of division. And then on the issue of migration and refugees as well. What was it that each site that each side of the island had actually hoped to gain from his visit? He came in with an incredibly strong point to make. Rather turning down or masking what political gains the Turkish Cypriot side and the Greek Cypriot side wanted to achieve. Yeah, I mean, again, this is a. There are a lot of political stakes on each side, of course. There are, it's really hard to say to kind of encapsulate what, you know, an entire population on one side of the island might have might have wanted versus the other side of the island. It's really difficult to speak about. An entire population in those terms. But I think what the Pope, the Pope and hope to do is to bring this message of unity. And, you know, Cyprus, you can look at Cyprus as a kind of microcosm of some of the divisions we're seeing between the Greek Turkish side and the Greek Cypriot side of the Turkish Cypriot side. That's kind of a microcosm of some of the divisions we're seeing between Greece and turkey. And again, in that same context, there are people caught people asylum seekers, refugees caught in between that and being politicized in the way that Pope Francis denounced both on his visit to Cyprus and his visit to during his visit to Greece. Absolutely. I mean, he was the clear blaming the EU's nationalist divisions for not getting its act together with migration, a problem which is affected migration for quite a long time now, and also he was asking Cypriots to try to deal with what he described as a terrible laceration that has divided their island for nearly half a century. These are huge intractable problems, but what effect does France is actually have on all this? Because people listen to him. Right. I mean, a lot of this is symbolic, right? Again, it's really, really, really difficult to say whether any real policy change or any any change really will come from the Pope's words, whether it's whether we're talking about Cyprus or whether we're talking about some of the policy that the EU is taking on migration that the Pope criticized it's really difficult to say, but I've seen a very positive reaction online and from people on the ground, the Pope is someone who has a history of speaking his mind and being radical on some of these issues. And I think at the very least it's given some people hope, whether it's in Cyprus, that they're the words will inspire more unity or whether it's on the migration issue that there will be a more human centered approach to the mic to the issue of asylum seekers and refugees in Greece and in Europe.

"Folks, we're talking with the author, Laurence lemur about his brand new book capotes, women, of course, referring to Truman Capote. Lawrence, for those who don't know this story, what is the background of capote's women? In other words, we know that he has this outrageous talent. It carries him rather quickly to New York City, where he really falls in with this crowd, but it's usually very wealthy society, women, babe Paley and others. How did that happen for him? How did he find himself in those circles? Well, this genius and this incredibly ambitious man, everything is material, right? Whatever season does, he's going to use one way or the other. In 1958, he's off on an island of Greece in Greece. And he decides he wants to write a book called answered prayers. Based on the action that answered prayers are more unhappiness over answered prayers and unanswered prayers. And it would be the life of these 7 incredibly wealthy women that were his friends. This beautiful stylish women. So these are the women that was already friends with in the 50s. In other words, he comes to New York. He takes society by storm, and he manages to befriend and get into the confidence of 7 very wealthy very beautiful women already by that time. And he makes this decision to write a book about them as early as 58. Right. And with a style that has lost in the world. They're obsessed with style address. And when they went out, they're always perfection. When they walked into the car, one of these other restaurants, everybody turned. And they maintained that thing for years.

Professor Victor Davis Hanson Discusses His Latest Book 'The Dying Citizen'

"Welcome back to America first with professor Viktor Davis Hansen. Professor the book is titled the dying citizen. Let's spend a few minutes on the importance of this concept because in an age where civics seems to be dead where your far more likely is a teenager to be taught that America is the problem, not that citizenship is essential for the healthy functioning of any nation, especially republic. Will you give us the prey, the cliff notes on citizenship and why it is the bedrock of western civilization? Yeah, I try to point out that we think we take it for granted. But in the 7000 year history of civilization, it came very late, 2500 years ago in Greece and then later in Rome, and then through Europe with starts and halts and ends and a checkered history. And now we have it because the natural condition of man apparently was to be a serf or a slave or a subject, but a citizen that asked a lot of a person, they have to elect their own officials. They have to keep them accountable. They have to make their own budgets and expenditures. They choose when to fight and when not. And so it requires a lot of responsibilities in exchange for these unique rights. And it's fragile. There's a 190 nations in the world today, and I think you could be charitable to say 90 of them are constitutional societies, most or not. And they were not in history. And this country is the longest surviving constitution republic. Of the republics or democracies that survive today. And in the book, I try to suggest that historically, if you look at these systems, you have to have a middle class, and we're losing it. We know that. Now with this erosion and wages again that had been arrested the last four years, it's imperiled more

"Greece in the early part of the nineteenth century wasn't yet an independent country. It had been under the rule of the ottoman empire since the mid fifteenth century and this was the geopolitical situation in athens in eighteen. O one thomas. Bruce seventh earl of elegant was appointed as the ambassador extraordinary and minister. Plenipotentiary of his britannic majesty to the sublime port of selma third sultan of turkey prior to arriving in the ottoman empire. He asked the british government if they were interested in. Hiring artists can make drawings and take plaster casts of the sculptures at the parthenon. The british government was in no way interested. However even if the government wasn't interested. Thomas bruce still was so using his own funds. He hired a team of artists to document. The artwork found at the parthenon so far all of his plans for documenting. What was at the parthenon. We're perfectly fine. If he had just stuck to this. I probably be doing an episode today about something else. however he didn't didn't just stick to documenting the artwork. He soon began removing whatever sculptures that he could in total he took twenty one full statues fifteen meta panels which are carver. Tabular architectural pieces and a full seventy five meters of the parthenon frieze which decorated the upper interior of the parthenon. All of this marble sculpture was sent them all. To and then to england they became known as the elgin marbles named after the earl of elegant and because they were all made out of marble they are also known as the parthenon marbles. This was all done at the personal expense of the earl. At a cost of seventy four thousand two hundred and forty pounds or what today would be worth five million pounds or about six point eight million dollars.

He's in Cyrus insured him that he unlocked his affair knees would do everything possible to support the Spartans in pursuit of total Victory Cyrus had five hundred talents with him and prom spend even more money and benefit of bravado the Young Prince even promised that if it wasn't enough he would break up the gold and silver Throne that he sat on and give it to him wage standard a little bit later asked if Cyrus would pay each of the Peloponnesian soldiers. 600 Bulls were one drop my per day which was doubled the standard rate of 300 bulls for both of them and the Athenians. He informed him that if this was the stipulated wage, the higher Cruise of the Athenians would desert to receive this higher pay from the Spartans. And therefore Cyrus ultimately would come to spend less money because of the war would end sooner in this way home or Cyrus declined and told him that he was only allowed to give what was specified in the treaty as the Persians had agreed to pay 3000 miles per person. But later on that evening after dinner was finished Cyrus asked laughing. And if there was anything that he could do to please him the most Lysander answered that it would please him the most if he would add just one more doable of pay for each of his Sailors for a total of 4 Cyrus for some reason perhaps because of lysander's charm not only agreed to this but also gave them back pay an advance for a month only a royal Prince and the Queen's favorite could have raised a Spartans pay without further authorization still live standard didn't want.

"I don't know my Approach is, I just kind of take some time and do something different. I hit massive massive wall. Like I said last not this past winter, but the winter before and I basically didn't do anything for several months. Like I had so much stuff done in advance that I was able to do that but basically for several months, I just played Assassin's Creed Odyssey song. And it kind of just like refreshed my brain in a sense. Obviously. I worked to my day job like I didn't just stay at home and play video games all day, but like I don't need something different and but it was like it wasn't completely different. Like I was playing a video game set in ancient Greece and then I got like super excited about. Oh shoot. Okay, it's Jim to like jump back on the wagon and start doing more episodes in the peloponnese and start doing the Peloponnesian War episode sort of thing. So I kind of got out of the rut by doing something different but I was at least kind of tangentially still there if that makes any sense. So that's kind of what I did the first time I had when I like stopped doing narrative episodes and I did guest episode I started doing some guests episodes and then when I hit another ride my second one, I took off the podcast and I focused on some stuff in my life and I started playing the Assassin's Creed game and I kind of just, you know did something else for a little while? Oh, yeah that that's really good advice. Yeah. Yep. Play save myself. That's how I keep myself. You're hooked on history for sure. That's a have you played. I've never played that but I've actually haven't played Assassin's Creed Odyssey was the first PlayStation PlayStation in general definitely was the first PlayStation 4 game. But the first PlayStation game in general. I played in almost a decade. Like I stopped playing video games when I was in college cuz I lost track of time. Like I just was not able to I was just so busy and then I just kind of never I think PS2 was where I stopped off but then was like all this game looks so awesome. So I'm like, I think it was like Black Friday of 2018 or whatever. I like went out Baird the crowds and got myself a cheap PS4 and then I played Origins as well. I got really really addicted. Yeah got really addictive Odyssey that cuz then I want to play Origins as well. So For the podcast. I'm wondering like where should we start? You know, you mentioned that you're really into the origin the origin of things. So should we start chronologically or should we follow a theme so you can do both so there are it.

"I like learning about those gee whiz type of information that just aren't necessarily necessary. And so like if when if I'm going to put all that effort and in time and putting this month project together, then I'm definitely going to do something that is a representative of me like again, this was an outlet for my passion. I'm not I never started this to get rich off of podcasting. I'm doing it became I love the material and I was studying it on my own I even used to edit Wikipedia articles. I was doing stuff on my own. I was like, well, I'll just turn into a podcast if people listened they listened if they don't don't smoke and I kind of I think that's think that's good advice to give to people like if you're going to start something like obviously you want to know what your listeners are and kind of you want to improve your craft, but you don't want to like change it so much that it's it's not you and it keeps fake that makes sense. Yeah. I totally understand that. Do you still edit Wikipedia articles? I don't have the time as much. Yeah. I took the time near as much sometimes every now and then I'll Wikipedia is is come a long way in the last decade. When when I started it's a very good resource now for bibliography I go there all the time for when I'm like, oh I'm doing a 4 episode series ended on a 4 episode series and like woman's life in ancient Greece and I was just like, okay. I have one book on this like what other books should I go and check out page? How you go there and you're like, oh, this is the resources at bottom of the page. They'll page like women in ancient Greece and I'm like, oh, okay. Well, let me see what books these are recommended and see if my library has them or that I can buy off Amazon that are less than like fifty bucks because you know, I wouldn't I'm not going to pay a whole lot of books. It's a great resource aggregator. Yeah, for sure. So, every now and then I'll be like I don't do it as much with my my narrative episodes but every now and then I will do a topic and I for example when I was doing like mathematics it was doing some research and I was like, oh the Wikipedia page for mathematics is very light and I'll just throw some stuff in there, but I don't put near as much effort into it as I used to because I used to do it a lot.

"It's know. This is what that particular subset of the Greeks may have thought so definitely gotta take with a grain of salt. Yeah. I'm over the gender expectations like for meal and for female it kind of depends on the city state and it also kind of depends on how much Credence you put into the sources and that's kind of back to what we say like five people on Athens. If you read xenophon like an Oma kiss, which is where this is house household unit family know most like laws or Traditions. So it's like basically where we get the word economics kind of talks about like how an ideal woman the wife should be but like again, he's a rich guy like this is kind of it's not is it how was in reality? Like you look at the archaeological evidence Page look at logic like if you were poor it probably was a completely different Circumstance the women weren't secluded like xenophon may have you believe they would have had to be out and about work because their family needed them to survive. They were poor you have to look at the sources and just kind of be like, all right, is this logical and some of them some of its know this is more of like what they thought it should be like so again Spartanburg additionally is known as a city state that would have more freedoms for women the women weren't so sort of secluded. But again in Athens, it just depends on the time. You're talking about for talking about classical Athens you have this ideal where they were just kind of citizens who you had babies with and they ran the household they did the Ouija they managed the slaves. They were excluded from certain from a local rights. But again, they had power they had certain powers when it came to religious rights. It just depends on the city state and also it just depends on whether you kind of believe the sources or not. But again, it would not be the same for like a 2020 woman going back. It would be completely kind of sheltered no matter where you fall on that spectrum of whether they were secluded or they actually had more freedom. It's definitely not like it isn't twenty years. No matter where you go back in ancient Greece. It would definitely would have been crappier for a woman. Yeah, I mean in Sparta you had more relatives freedom but like Sparta was also like a totalitarian state wage. So is anyone really free in a totalitarian state? I would suppose I guess it just depends on what your philosophy of them is on that. They had women at least according to the sources again off the women would have children and then their children basically were wardens of the state and were designed to be soldiers again how accurate that is is another question. You don't really have the traditional family structure that you think of now where it's like the men were off training doing calisthenics hunting and that sort of thing and children are ripped at the age of seven and had to go through training as well. So it was kind of yeah, you had a lot of Fringe based upon your system, but are you really free and that sort of system? So I guess it's that sort of philosophy. How do you look at it? I mean, wouldn't want to be a woman and it's hard to either. So if I if were to if I were to choose be dead, I would want to be an upper. I would want to be an upper-class rich man in and classical happens if I had to go back and only for a little while because when you talk about it be cities were they're not modern Thursdays..

"Like, it just seemed like it seems so like primordial like the beginning of things where I mean plenty of things started in Rome, but I mean like with you see a grease it's it's a foundation of lot of the things that we do and in the ancient near East and other ancient cultures as well. But with Rome the Republic I enjoy your building things up and but then the Empire is just kind of kind of stagnant and I mean that's generalizing. It's kind of stagnant and then you just basically log The Narrative of like one Emperor does something and then he's killed off by people and then replaced with another Emperor and then goes towards out east and then gets killed off again, it's to me it just wasn't as exciting and increase it was the it just it just aroused aroused me more like my my intellectual curiosity and when I was in Rome I loved her own but was always fascinated by Renaissance room more than like emotional realm. I always say if I were to do another podcast it would probably like the Renaissance Italy. It would not be ancient Rome. I don't know I've actually have been getting big into the ancient Middle East especially specifically Persia lately. So I've always so I'm really big into ancient Persia as well which is kind of above the office right now, but I mean guess but like you're going to say grease it's you kind of really have to study Rome like I studied ancient Roman courses. I I've read all the authors like I teach High School class on Ancient birth. Like you kind of you have to know the stuff cuz some of the a lot of the things are very interchangeable. They're very different and a lot of aspects but they're also you know, there's a lot of similarity between there and I mean Grease long as I'm sure you're well aware has influenced from culture quite a bit and vice versa. Yeah and grease was a part of her own. So I guess you technically can't study Greece without studying Rome. Yeah. Do you mind telling us a bit about the origin story of Greece? You mean like where the Greeks came from? You know where they came from? If I'm not mistaken the Romans that sprung out from Romulus and Remus. Well according to their yet their mythology. So the Greeks yeah, they had a creation story they hesiod theogony is probably the most well-known version though. There are others other Cosmic. Theogony. She's a believe that they came from an ancestor of one the gods that you know, Zeus the heroes and so forth. They had this whole elaborate mythology, which is you know, something also I was super interesting as a kid Greek mythology or a little bit as a kid, but not a huge when I got to college. Their origin stories they're so they're not really called the Greeks per se. They didn't call themselves Greek. That was a little romance. It was the name of the Romans gave them. It's the modern Greece. They were called the hellenes their country was hell off, but they weren't United. They weren't like a unified people like politically. I mean, they had a similar culture similar religion similar in those aspects in other languages, but they weren't like ever entirely unified even even when you think of like a unified grease in the popular conception like, oh the Persian Wars it was only like 30% of the Greeks that actually came together to fight against the Persians. There were many Greeks on the Persian side and there were many that were neutral they were politically disjointed and a lot of that has to do with typography greased when you think about this you think of modern Greece, but the Greek world was all over the Mediterranean and black seas, and they're scattered everywhere and hundreds and hundreds of islands. Maybe even thousands too many wage..

"Hello and welcome back to this week's episode of amped-up radio where I'm joined by Ryan stick creator of the history of ancient Greece podcast off. I'm so excited to have you here with us today Ryan and learn about you and your show. Thank you so much for having me. I'm glad you reached out. This is I'm excited that there are younger enthusiasm enthusiastic historians getting into the podcasting game. Well, I heard that you originally back in college you weren't you didn't sneak off as a Classics major you were a chem major? Yes. That's true. I I was the first person my family to go college. I had no idea really why I wanted to do. I was just good at chemistry. So I started out doing that many really like it per se long story short. I went through a a Winding Road of different topics that I am I actually was planning on going to law school at one point and then I ended up falling into Classics when I got into well for a few reasons. I came across 300 the movie. Led me to take watch take a Greek history course. I started taking Latin cuz when I cuz it was like, oh pre-med pre-law sort of thing. I was like, oh Latin would be useful. It just kind of a perfect storm came about and I was actually like wasn't sure what I was going to do. I was like, oh pre-law or grad school, and then I studied abroad in Greece and Rome for a year, and that was my senior year and that basically still had that I want to go grad school and then when I got to grad school, I realized there weren't that many jobs. So I ended up. Unfortunately. I had I took some time off for some personal reasons and then just decided not to go back and then eventually I start the podcast as a way to keep my love of the ancient world going so and with an alternate careers or so just now you mentioned you studied abroad both in Rome and in Greece. So, how do you end up settling for ancient Greece and not sure? Room so it's a complicated story. I guess grease was always my favorite. I think it had more to do with that was the first one that I really fell in love with and bought. It just seemed more foreign to me. It was different to me. It was more exciting. I guess to me like the Romans. I like Roman Republic in history. Not the Empire. Yeah, not the Empire so much. I'm I've always been someone who's like a big fan of like the origins of things.

I just usually get I will in my podcast episodes I'll give both I'll give a dissenting opinions and approving opinions and I'll kind of just be like, I think it might be the former latter and then move on right? Yeah. Yep. I'm sorry. What was that? I said at least I do that now early on in the podcast. I was pretty much just like kind of picking and choosing what I thought was appropriate and just yeah with it now. I'm a little bit off more like into the both sides of the status and talking about in digging deeper. As long as you don't get into the these people think there was an Atlantis and all that and then everybody knows that's what drives me crazy that kind of stuff. I mentioned that briefly when it came to creat how the earthquake or I'm sorry the volcano in Santorini. One of the theories is that may have led to the story of Atlantis, but pretty much most of Atlantis is just an allegory that you see in Play-Doh and you shouldn't be taken seriously, you know, but I know I know I would just need like a tourist guide for when you go to like Santorini or Creed to go and you say you get to say read the Lost Island of Atlantis. Yeah and by suck. Indice and buy some merchandise and go check out the volcano and all the litter in it. Yeah, you can swim out and see the volcano when I was there smoking still active.

"They had to be able poke in the eyes and gresel and everything else though man handle combat when the when the Phalanx breaks down exactly. That's a good segue because you know going decade-by-decade. Sometimes we miss the big the big things in history, you know a place where I'm looking for the big sweep of History type of things certain themes themes. Yes, you know when you're going so topic of our episode today is dead. The relationship with the Greeks and the near East prior to the Persian invasions like in my school days. I remember being told or given the impression at least the Persians just found out about five weeks after the ionian revolt and then the mainland Greece, you know had eight of them and then the Persian sort of said, well, who are these guys? Let's go teach them a lesson. Yeah. I mean I learned summer. I learned some pretty odd things to Growing Up A lot of it was like this whole Greek Miracle thing where the Greek civilization came out of nowhere where in fact there was so much continuity continuity between the the near East and the Greeks and both cultures kind of pushed off of each other and influence the other culture during the Iron Age. I mean shoot the Phoenicians and the Greeks. I'm sure you've talked about that and then the trade through trade even as far back the Mycenaean. They had the connections with the near East so there's dead. There there's been a connection there. The Greek Greek soldiers fought is mercenaries in pretty much every major battle and near Eastern history. You could either even even there they may be mentioned or you can kind of just assumed that they were there just I mean you don't want to assume but you can kind of speculate that that's the case and in some cases they were even outright mentioned we have even Greek sources mentioning they were so like, you know, they're they're involved. So there's no way like that famous story later on when the when the Spartans and the Athenian ambassadors go to the Persian think if I think it's dries, yeah dries and they're like who are these people? You know, you can take that with a grain of salt because they obviously would have known these people were dead who said who are these people the Persians or the Greeks the Persians write such a yeah, these who are these people like they would they were I mean, obviously the Greeks at that point where like small dog Cato's to use that analogy iridium compared to a lot of the civilizations that were in the Persian Empire, but they would have known who they were sure. That's the that's the that's the point and there's not a lot of we don't have a lot of documentation on it, but there's a little nuggets here and there then there's archaeology we found and it did some research on it wasn't as long I mean team Cambridge ancient history has a whole chapter on it, but I don't know I find Cambridge ancient history hard to follow.

This is what happens when you get to podcasters talking about something that's just outside of the range of what they've actually covered in the podcast so far. Seat That certainly covers all of the thematic and. Political topics I wanted to get your input on and. Get a Greek perspective. So to speak for mine listeners Is there anything you'd like to add? To our conversation about Greece in Persia. No I now I I'm just. Thankful I'm appreciative of you invited me on it I'm glad you started the podcast because I only covered the Greeks or I'm sorry I only covered the Persians maybe about. Four episodes. So, I mean obviously excluding the Persian wars but I mean like the Early History Persia. So it's been, it's been interesting to listen to like full-on detailed. Of like. Persian provinces in Persian. Cultural stuff as opposed to just covered things that you typically would find in. Herodotus. And or Stenius once he becomes. More relevant I suppose.

Unfortunately there's no native. Persian historical ancient it came in and source that. All we have is the Greeks so. Persia Persians stuck with the Greeks. For better. Every now, and there's a hint of like some kind of independent tradition that POPs up in one of the Roman sources where someone like Diodoros, Nicholas, Vasquez will mention something that nobody else has ever talked about and we think maybe there was some kind of oral tradition or Britain tradition that we've lost but ultimately were stuck with the Greeks for better or worse and it's important to know what their opinions of the Persians were. So thank you for coming on it talking to us about that.

"I mean sure. There's a lot of great things, but there's a lot of great things foundational period in Archaic. There's quite a bit of accomplishment in Helena sectarian too. So it's definitely in this historic graphical bias it's like, okay, this Zine. So then it the old period in. Yeah, beforehand. So you look at it that way. Yeah, and I think there's something to be said for will of course, historians prefer the classical period. It's when they started writing all of the history down. So we're obviously extremely biased towards. The sources were actually able to get us out of. Now you mentioned that. In your podcast. You're. Getting into the Peloponnesian war in the Persians or about to get involved and I think that's a good thing to touch on to is that when I get this episode into my podcast feed It's going to probably be right before we start Xatzis invasion of Greece. And for a lot of people and even some very popular books. That's kind of the end of what people know about. Persia in general and Persian involvement in Greece. But that's not really the end of the story. So Going into the classical period as we've been calling it, do the Greek. What's going on in Greece and how much are they ignoring persia or how much are the Persian still involved? So. Persians always there whether actively or in the background of a law on foreign policy decisions throughout the fifth century see as as we mentioned the whole entire impetus of the Deli in. League that the the Athenians. Took control of the spartans it did it first they took control of the defense afterwards until Posse Aska booted out for Dina the arrogant Spartan leader in anyway but. But the aristotle. And the establishment of Elian. Lee, and that eventually in you know in, they're trying to keep the Fenian out of sorry and they're trying to keep the Persians out of the Aegean the that part of the Mediterranean there. There's become this the naval kind of hot slash Cold War going on throughout the fifth century. It's basically the Persians and the Greeks are technically at war from I guess you can say four, ninety nine to With at four, forty, nine, I believe is when there's either an official or unofficial piece on that's established Collars are generally or they're generally torn on that because it to brief mentions, but we won't go into that anyway. So there's like an unofficial piece and then. You See. For I mentioned earlier, four, sixty, seven, the battle you need on. And then there's kind of like this law period There's some fighting near Cyprus the fighting over the island of Cyprus time on event. That's where he dies at A. Four fifty S I believe it is early four, Fifty S. And then you see this the. An effort in a four fifty, you see the outbreak of what's typically called the first. Peloponnesian War to distinguish between the the later Peloponnesian more famous On the SPARTANS really don't get involved in this one until towards the end when the Athenians develop their way, they conquer a lot of places in central Greece and the kind of extend themselves a little bit too far. They actually they. There's also neal you'll get an additional podcasts. There's A. There's a revolt in Egypt that the Athenians end up helping out against Persia and they get some of their fleet a fleet destroy down there. So there they fight the per the Athenians are fighting the Persians. In Egypt. In the fifties. And as well. So by the time you get about four, forty, nine, four, forty, seven actually is been..

"Think is what does it mean to be Greek in the context of the early to Middle Fifth Century I guess is about where we're going to be placing this episode. So. This is a tricky question. I took a graduate course on on the Greeks, and like the entire first week was what was Greek identity It's it's a tricky to answer like a everyone always points to Herodotus I think in the book six or something don't quote me but he whenever the the Greeks are coming together, it might be book five but whenever the Greeks are coming together in their council Boaz the Persians invading he uses the Greek word called Hellinikon which roughly translated as like Greek nece and he says something along the lines of I'm paraphrasing it's common customs, common language religion, a common values and the Greeks but that's the first time we see that word and so that's in the classical period. But you see. In a comes about because the Greeks aren't what we kind of think about as modern Greece actually in Greece is actually Greek is actually a that's not what they call themselves. They were Hellenes people came from Helen. Not. The Woman who started the Trojan War but Like the the ancestral of son of ion or a ancestral project, her one, the had the the tribes that were there ion doors and all of them. But they Nicole their. Country Hellas. Greek succumb later from the Romans and whatnot but. They weren't like what we would think of as like modern Greek. There was no geographical boundaries they spread throughout the Mediterranean into the Waxy region when they call it is. So it's this. It's this very controversial. What is it means the Greek? Who who was was was Greek identity that important to them, more it Greek identity for them was. So you get the word barbarian non Greeks Barbara Roy people who spoke a non had Barbarian diction didn't speak read Bar Barbara shows up in homer it's talking about these carryings who Sounded like there was just speaking bar Bar Bar, and that's where you can get the word So it comes to delineate between Greek speakers, angry speakers. But it's The identity is it it? It's tricky. It's because most most of the Greeks were not they were not unified politically at least until like the Macedonian period and the only really came kind of quasi unified wendy like when they're pet external threats and even then like with the Persians invaded, which you'll get to in your podcast eventually, it was only like not even. I'm probably actually overstating it, but I don't even think of it was like thirty percent of the Greeks actually. Came together. Some of them were neutral act most of them a good chunk of that actually joined the Persian side. Some and most were neutral though it was just. So, it wasn't like a Greek alliance. It was like a small amount of Greek aligns, but what meant and I sale that but it was like, what meant the most to them was more of their police identity more than a Greek identity So you're an Athenian, your spartan or your been that meant more than this over our overall arching notion of I am a Greek, there was really.

"Everyone I'm Trevor Kelly, was him to a special episode of the history of Persia podcast and the history of ancient. Greece. As history of Persia rapidly approaches sees invasion of the Greek mainland and arguably a sort of beginning for one hundred and fifty years of on and off conflict. In the Aegean, I wanted to get an expert opinion on the so-called Yona. So, please enjoy this detailed conversation between myself and the excellent. Ryan stick. So really what I want this to be is a conversation about Greece, sort of as it relates to Persia, but also what it is on its own because it's going to be such massive cog in the machine of the Persian Empire for most of my series. But I feel like you're probably much better equipped to explain what it really means to be Greek than I am given that you are the most of the history of ancient Greece But I think I could you introduce yourself everyone? I know a lot of my listeners overlap with your listeners but I'm sure there are some people who haven't heard quite yet. Yeah. My Name's Ryan. I am the creator host of the history of Ancient Greece podcast. On twitter at Greek history pod I know that's confusing for some. Grease history. pod was already taken so. it's not anymore. So I was thinking about switching back, but that's a digression anyway. But Yeah I I cover the history of ancient Greece from. Technically from the Paleolithic Neolithic period to the plan is to act him but I mean I only spent. One twenty minute episode of the stone. Age. So. Technically covered it but and we did a few episodes in the bronze. Age. currently right now we are in the classical period the pope nation war and the Persians are starting to get involved in the war so. There's some overlapping there I I I do I. Do kind of what Trevor does. He seems to have similar methodology I do chronological, but also fi medical when it's appropriate. So since it's the classical period and we have a lot more sources, I've been I did like a whole cultural tour of classical period. So I've been in the classical period for like two years. Now specifically have been in the fifth century for like two years. Now, I will be in the classical period for a while. If you consider the classical period to Alexandra in the conquest of the came at empire which we do so I'll be in the classical period for a couple more years. Oh Great. The yeah. The fifth century is kind of a monster topic to cover in Greek history I. Think. We have few cities in Herodotus, the to the earliest Greek historians and the two main ones. xenophon comes later he still technically fit century but. Of It so like you for the first time, you have these like dedicated histories. To a century though obviously herodotus has you know goes back a little bit further beyond that. Earlier than that to cover the rise of the Persians as I'm sure you're. You're well aware of Herodotus, his listeners. To quote myself as Herodotus says. Insert most of the podcast. The first thing I'd really like you to maybe explain to me and my listeners because obviously I got my ba in classics and what I'm in Grad School for but. I you've engaged with it much more in depth than I have I.

"ROM, it starts at Rome and like everything reverberates around ROM. It is the epicenter. So you have like this one narrative coming out from say 7:53 p.m. You want it supposedly was founded and then you just call it kind of Follow that through but with grease they were never unified and you have thousands of different policies with multiple theaters throughout the entire Mediterranean with nowhere near the level of like historical sources that talk about their history. I mean early Roman history is very suspect because it's not written till about hundreds of years later, but at least they have found something written down whereas you don't really get much about Greece until you get to the classical. So, yeah, it's just just a lot of it's just a lot going on at 1 a.m. Just especially in the arcade and they're late the early period of it. So it's a lot of it's a headache if if.
