One of the foremost elements explored is Eretria's position as a pioneer coloniser in either the Levant and the West - its early Aegaen 'island empire' anticipates that of Athens by way of greater than a century, and Eretrian delivery and exchange was once equally widespread.


Eretria's significant, certainly dominant, function within the occasions of primary Greece within the final half the 6th century, and within the occasions of the Ionian riot to 490 is obviously tested, and the tyranny of Diagoras (c.538-509), possibly the golden age of town, is absolutely examined.
