Caridemo: storia di un freelance

Elisabetta Bianco

Abstract


The aim of the paper is to offer a reconstruction of the career of Charidemos, outstanding Euboian mercenary of the fourth century B.C., who received Athenian citizenship and became an important strategos; unfortunately the main source about him is the demosthenic speech Against Aristocrates (XXIII), which gives a negative, exaggerated and probably false portrait. So in this paper other sources are highlighted in order to offer another picture of this important figure.

Keywords


mercenaries, Athens, Demosthenes, fourth century B.C., strategoi
