    Book details

The first draft of this work was in the form of a thesis which was approved for the Degree of Master of Arts in the University of London in 1913. It has now been revised and a few additions have been made. The following considerations led to the choice of this subject. Miletus was admittedly one of the leading commercial cities of the Greek world, but the exact nature of her commerce has never been investigated in detail. Moreover, although the important part played in the history of the ancient Greeks by geographical and economic conditions has of late years aroused much interest and discussion, yet there has hitherto been no systematic attempt to trace the influence of these conditions upon the development of MU etus previous to 334 B.C. These deficiencies I have endeavoured to supply. It was unnecessary to pass beyond 334 B.C., for the history of Miletus subsequent to that date has been fully treated of by Haussou Uier in his Etudes sur VH istoire de Milet et du Didymeion. Similarly, Milesian hterature, philosophy and art have already been discussed by other writers, and therefore I have only touched upon them so far as was necessary to show their connection with the economic development of the city.
