'Least Talked About Among Men?': the verbal and spatial rhetoric of women's roles in Classical Athens (ca.450-350BCE)
Author(s): Lisa Nevett
This is an abstract from the "At the Interface the Use of Archaeology and Texts in Research" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
In this paper I argue that comparing views derived from texts and material culture highlights the conscious manipulation of both media by their creators in order to communicate specific messages. I suggest that an awareness of this kind of manipulation has a vital role to play, not only in the interpretation of textual sources (as is often recognised), but also of archaeological ones (which is more rarely acknowledged). As a demonstration of this point I focus on the debate concerning the roles played by women in Classical Athens, building on previous interpretations of both the textual and the archaeological evidence.
