Halicarnassus - Salmakis. A pre-Classical sympoliteia?

Adrià Piñol-Villanueva

    Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review


    The article focuses on the status of the settlement of Salmakis and the Salmakitans mentioned in two Halicarnassian inscriptions: Syll.3 46 and Syll.3 45 respectively. On the basis of some thematic and formal features of Syll.3 45, it is suggested that the status quo mirrored in the inscription is that resulting from a sympoliteia whereby Halicarnassus had absorbed the neighbouring polis of Salmakis. The article closes with some considerations on the possible location of Salmakis.
