Example text

In 700 it was probably the most densely occupied Greek settlement as well as one of the largest Greek communities. But what about its economic base? Was its heavy engagement in trade and reliance on imported food exceptional, or a pattern widely repeated? The data which we used to deduce the high degree to which Pithekoussai relied on imported food, and therefore the extent to which it was implicated in exchange networks, were its population and its agricultural capacity. Not only is Pithekoussai unique among eighth-century Greek settlements in giving us reasonably good evidence for population, but the fact that it is a small island enables much more confident measurement of agricultural capacity than would normally be the case.

We simply cannot understand the position a settlement was in unless we have some idea of how big it was. But how can we tell? In the case of Pithekoussai, the evidence is archaeological. 5 and 5 per cent of the whole cemetery in the Valle de San Montano. This suggests that, if the density of burials was constant over the whole cemetery, the total number of burials there was between 9,860 and 19,720. Of these 27 per cent were perinatal deaths; a further 39 per cent were children, up to 39 Folio HOW MANY GREEKS WERE THERE?
