The Institute will host its third lecture of the year on Wednesday May 19. Due to continuing restrictions on in-person gatherings, this will take the form of a webinar to be held via Zoom. Laure Sarah Ethier Boutet (Boursière Elisabeth Alföldi-Rosenbaum de l’Institut canadien en Grèce; doctorante en histoire à l’Université de Montréal) will give a lecture entitled, Argilos après Philippe II: Occupation hellénistique et gestion du territoire”.

“Suite à sa conquête par Philippe II en 357 av. n.è., le site d’Argilos a révélé une toute dernière phase d’occupation, dont témoigne la construction sur l’acropole d’un imposant manoir.  À partir du règne de Philippe II, il est coutume pour les souverains macédoniens d’octroyer les terres conquises à leurs compagnons (hetairoi), pour assurer leur fidélité ainsi que la surveillance et le développement économique du territoire. Le manoir d’Argilos se démarque comme l’un des rares cas identifiés de ce type d’installation.

Grâce à l’étude préliminaire du mobilier archéologique, cette communication aborde la fonction économique et le caractère défensif de l’occupation hellénistique d’Argilos, afin de mettre en lumière le fonctionnement et la gestion de ce système de distribution des terres en Macédoine.

You are all most welcome to join us for this the talk, which will begin at 19:00 (Greece) / 12:00 (EST). The link is: https://umontreal.zoom.us/j/87858000530?pwd=Sk0zblprSjI0dDNKclpDalNUTE9kUT09.
