Halieis. An Ancient Greek City Lost And Found

AIA Society: Montréal
Lecturer: Bradley Ault

Halieis was a diminutive Greek polis that flourished in the Southern Argolid between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE.  This overview will present the history of the site, along with a survey of its topography as recovered by archaeological work conducted there in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and as established by subsequent research into its remains.  Halieis stands as a prime example of the 6th century Milesian poet Phocylides’ observation that, “A polis on a barren rock, small but settled in an orderly fashion, is greater than senseless Nineveh”.
