Sample text

His knowledge of Cyrillic scripts and of Slav languages made the source material accessible, but this familiarity also made him sensible of the possibilities that the limited evidence available at that time could offer. The problems that historians have since identified with Rostovtzeff ’s approach have less to do with his materials, and more to do with his conceptual framework. His economic history is couched in a political narrative, which is, in essence, the political history of a subset of the agents concerned: The history of the commercial relations between Greece (especially Ionia and Athens) and Thrace is similar [to the Bosporan kingdom].

Thrace exported to Greece through the colonies of the Euxine (Apollonia and Mesembria) and those on the Aegean coast (especially Abdera, Maronea, Aenus, and Amphipolis), large quantities of the same products as were exported from South Russia (chiefly grain and fish) and of metals and timber as well. The imports from Thrace in the early years were probably balanced by exports of wine and olive oil from Greece. But the Greek cities of the Thracian coast very soon became notable centres of wine production, 35 Horden and Purcell provide an extensive discussion, which has not been superseded in subsequent debates (2000, 9–25).

52 Sherratt emphasized that the significance of the two nodes he identified were articulated by continent-wide patterns. This interpretation effectively reverses Finley’s proposition that relegated distance exchange to a marginal role. It does not imply that commercial or other transactions played a very large part in terms of overall economic activities. There is no reason to doubt that most forms of economic endeavour were local and related to personal subsistence. The importance of Sherratt’s model lies in its successful integration of many separate economic entities into an interrelated network, articulated by a minimal formula of mutually agreed transactions.
