Kessinger Publishing, May 1, 2003 - History - 188 pages
1926. This collection of little sketches is not in any sense a scientific investigation into the economic and industrial history of Athens. It is merely an attempt to give the general reader who would learn something of this side of ancient Greek life an intelligible account of the way in which business and finance were carried on in Athens in the 4th century before Christ. It emphasizes the personal and ethical aspects of the subject, rather than technical processes or purely economic data. The author endeavored to learn and illustrate to the reader what sort of men controlled trade and finance in these times and places, what were their aims and ideals, their standards of honesty, and their methods of doing business.
