A Paper on Corinthian Peasants

Among the gaggle of Corinthian papers at this year’s Archaeological Institute of America/American Philological Associate Annual Meeting is a paper that David Pettegrew and I offer on peasants in the Corinthian countryside for a joint APA/AIA panel organized by Kim Bowes and Cam Grey from the University of Pennsylvania. (I’ve been blogging about this topic for some months now.)

Here’s the panel and the details:
