Prof. Paul Cartledge (University of Cambridge), “Thebes: the (nearly) lost city of Ancient Greece”

The city of Thebes in ancient Greece has too often been ‘forgotten’ – for various reasons. But actually there were two ancient cities of Thebes, not just one: the City of Myth (Kadmos, Oedipus and co) and the City of History (e.g., Epameinondas). The latter has been more often forgotten than the former! This short talk, based on a recent book, will seek to introduce both Cities – memorably.
