La propriété de la terre à Sparte à l’époque classique Essai de mise au point

Abstract : The article seeks primarily to summarize previous research. Two opposite views exist: private property (Hodkinson) and the “kleros-system” (Figueira). The relevant texts are studied first in reverse chronological order (Plutarch, Polybios), then in the usual way: Xenophon, Plato, and, most important, Aristotle, none of whom presents property as egalitarian and immovable. The idea that every citizen owned at least an inalienable lot of land, originating in a primary distribution and called archaia moira, first appears in a treatise compiled in the second century B.C. from the peripatetic Constitutions. It later gave birth to the image of the “kleros-system.”
