Studying the historiography of Duris of Samos means addressing also the relations between Athens and Samos in the fourth century BC, when the island became an Athenian cleruchy and Duris's family was forced into exile. As far as we know, once Duris returned to his homeland in 322 BC at the end of the Lamian War, he had no direct relations with the Diadochoi of Alexander. His Histories are exclusively concerned with the Diadochoi who were in contact with the Greek world that revolved around the Aegean Sea: in effect, in the fragments of Duris there is no trace of Egyptian, Syrian or Mesopotamian issues. Particularly noteworthy is Duris's interest in the figure of Demetrius Poliorcetes, a protagonist in no less than two surviving fragments of his Histories.

Abstract

Studying the historiography of Duris of Samos means addressing also the relations between Athens and Samos in the fourth century BC, when the island became an Athenian cleruchy and Duris's family was forced into exile. As far as we know, once Duris returned to his homeland in 322 BC at the end of the Lamian War, he had no direct relations with the Diadochoi of Alexander. His Histories are exclusively concerned with the Diadochoi who were in contact with the Greek world that revolved around the Aegean Sea: in effect, in the fragments of Duris there is no trace of Egyptian, Syrian or Mesopotamian issues. Particularly noteworthy is Duris's interest in the figure of Demetrius Poliorcetes, a protagonist in no less than two surviving fragments of his Histories.
