The object of the present treatise is to offer a contribution to the investigation into the trade and the traders of ancient Greece. To this end I have collected data from Greek authors from Homer to Aristotle. From this it is evident what period is covered by this investigation, and also that it is intentionally one-sided, being restricted to the data supplied by literature. Not until all the rest of the material for study that can throw a light on the trade of ancient Greece will have been collected and duly arranged it may become possible to give a complete description of the history of trade in ancient Greece. Yet the literary data are in themselves sufficient to answer various questions. To mention some, this treatise tries to fix with some certainty the meaning of the principal words relating to trade, the difference in meaning between the terms in which Greek trade and traders formed by the authors themselves or handed down by them; and in general to ascertain the nature and the extent of trade as well as the circumstances under which it was carried on, while some attention has been paid to the financial system. A consequence of the fact that the data have been borrowed from literature is that many of them bear on the trade of Athens an Attica exclusively.
