GALLEGO, Julián. The athenian cleruchy on Lesbos: allotment of land and exploitation of natives. Nova tellus [online]. 2022, vol.40, n.1, pp.51-86.  Epub Apr 08, 2022. ISSN 0185-3058.

This article analyzes the establishment of the Athenian cleruchy in the island of Lesbos in 427 BC. From the available evidence and research, the existence of a plot distribution pattern based on land use conditions previously developed by the Lesbians is conjectured. The permanence of the latter as tenants of these plots was subordinated to the extraction of an annual rent by the Athenians, similar to the income obtained by those belonging to hoplite status.

Keywords : Athens; Lesbos; Cleruchy; Land; Exploitation.
