Histiaea

(427 words)

Author(s): Kalcyk, Hansjörg (Petershausen)
[German version] This item can be found on the following maps: Persian Wars (Ἱστίαια; Histíaia). City on the north coast of Euboea, still not identified, probably to be found near Xirochori, a settlement of Thessalian Hellopii and Perrhaebi. The territory of H. originally covered the entire north of Euboea (Dem. Or. 23,213) and was known for its wine (Hom. Il. 2,537). The temple of Artemis Proseoa in Artemisium was its main sanctuary. After the naval battle at Cape Artemisium, the Persians occupied and plundered H. (Hdt. 8,23f.; 66,1; Diod. Sic. 11,13,5). The city joined the  Delian League in 477 BC with a relatively small tribute (1,000 drachmas, ATL 1,274f.; 3,22; 197; 239; 267f.; 288). H. played a leading role on the Euboean uprising against Athens in 446 BC and after its defeat was more harshly punished than, for example, Chalcis or Eretria. The inhabitants were exiled for seizing an Athenian ship and murdering its crew. Some 2,000 Attic cleruchs were settled in Oreus, a deme of H.'s on the coast (near today's Molos). After the Peloponnesian War and the withdrawal of the cleruchs, the exiled inhabitants returned to H. from Thessaly. H. and Oreus merged, as documented by a communal wall; Oreus became established as the city's name. The period of independence of both places is recalled by the acropoleis of the lower and upper city (cf. Liv. 28,6,2; 31,46,9). In the Corinthian War H., like other cities of Euboea, sided with the enemies of the Spartans, who occupied H. until the city was liberated by the Athenians in 377 (Diod. Sic. 15,30,1ff.; Xen. Hell. 5,4,56f.). H. was a member of the 2nd  Athenian League from 371 to 357/6, except for interruptions caused by the alliance with Thebes and in 343-341 by the tyranny of Philistides who was supported by Philip II. In the Hellenistic period, H. was mostly under Macedonian rule. In 208 BC (Liv. 28,5,18ff.) and 199 BC (Liv. 31,46,6ff.) H. was conquered by the Romans and  Attalus [4] I of Pergamon, but declared free after 197 (Pol. 18,47,10; Liv. 33,34,10; 34,51,1). Widespread coin finds and many proxenies point to its great commercial and political importance in the Hellenistic period. By contrast, nothing is known from the Roman period: Pliny (HN 4,64) still mentions H., but Mela and later authors do not ref…

[English version] I. Personen (Δίων) Meister, Klaus (Berlin) [English version] [I 1] Freund Platons, 4. Jh. v. Chr. Sohn des Hipparinos, Schwager und Schwiegersohn Dionysios' I. von Syrakus, * 409 v.Chr., seit Platons erstem Aufenthalt 388 in Syrakus dessen enger Freund und Verfechter seiner Philosophie. Unter Dionysios I. kam er als dessen Vertrauter und Ratgeber zu Ansehen und Reichtum und blieb auch unter Dionysios II. einflußreich. Er vermittelte 366 den Frieden mit Karthago und rief Platon nach Syrakus, um das Willkürregiment Dionysios' II. nach dem platonischen Staatsideal umzuformen. Dies mißlang völlig, da sich Dionysios als Person ungeeignet erwies und sich dessen Freunde und Berater, bes. Philistos, dagegen stellten. Des Hochverrats bezichtigt, mußte D. ins Exil nach Griechenland gehen; Anlaß bot ein Schreiben des D. an karthagische Freunde, nicht ohne seine Vermittlung Frieden zu schließen (Plat. epist. 7,329; Plut. Dion 14f.; mor. 53E). In seinem etwa neunjährigen Exil pflegte er als fürstlicher Herr in Athen enge Verbindung zur Akademie, erhielt in Sparta das Bürgerrecht und besuchte u.a. Korinth. Als er von Platon 360 in Olympia erfuhr, Dionysios II. wolle trotz Platons Fürsprache die Verbannung nicht aufheben, landete er 357 mit wenigen Schiffen und 600 Söldnern bei Minoa im karthagischen Teil Siziliens. Auf dem Weg nach Syrakus erhielt er großen Zulauf aus Akragas, Gela, Kamarina und sikelischen Gemeinden, während sich in Syrakus das Volk gegen Dionysios erhob. Dem triumphalen Einzug folgten ergebnislose Verhandlungen und wechselvolle Kämpfe mit dem auf Ortygia eingeschlossenen Tyrannen. D. und sein Bruder Megakles wurden zu bevollmächtigten Strategen gewählt, doch erregte sein selbstherrliches Auftreten das Mißtrauen der Demokraten, die sein früherer Kampfgenosse Herakleides anführte. Des Strebens nach der Tyrannis beschuldigt und abgesetzt, zog sich D. nach Leontinoi zurück, wurde jedoch bald zum Kampf gegen Nypsios, den General Dionysios' II., zurückgerufen. Nun ging D. rigide an die Verwirklichung des Idealstaats Platons. Er löste die Flotte als Brutstätte der Demokratie auf, zwang 355 Dionysios, nach Lokroi zu gehen, und nahm eine autoritäre und quasityrannische Stellung ein. D. berief eine verfassungsgebende Versammlung aus Syrakusiern und Korinthiern ein und ließ seinen Gegner Herakleides hinrichten. An die Spitze des Staates sollten mehrere Könige, unter ihnen D., und 35 Gesetzeswächter treten, Rat und Volksversammlung dagegen ihre Befugnisse weitgehend verlieren. Die allg. Ablehnung dieser Neuordnung führte 354 auf Befehl des der Akademie nahestehenden Kallippos zur Erm…
