2 Only members of the Spartan royal households and related aristocrats could claim descent from Herakles, thus proclaiming an ethnic heritage that was different from that of most of the ‘‘Dorian’’ population. See Hall (2002: 80–81). 3 See, however, van Wees (1999), who argues that Tyrtaios cannot be referring to the Rhetra. For a response in defense of the chronological priority of the Rhetra, see Hall (2007: 184–187). 4 Strøm (2009) also argues against early Argive control of the Heraion, though, on the basis of the archaeological finds, she thinks that it came under Argive influence in the course of the seventh century.

Their authority is ‘‘achieved’’ rather than ‘‘ascribed,’’ earned on the basis of charisma and the ability to persuade, and manifested through the demonstration of military prowess and conspicuous generosity. There are no clear indications for the sort of stratified society that the model of the ‘‘primitive state’’ presupposes, just a world of small communities where there are leaders and followers.

4) By the same token, the polis was exclusionary. Only adult, male, legitimate sons of a citizen father could become a citizen; in Athens after 451 BCE, a new requirement was added of having a mother of the citizen class as well. Women and children were permitted to take part in many religious rites and public festivals but they were excluded from political participation. With few exceptions, immigrants or freedmen could not become naturalized. Needless to say, slaves could not participate in politics either.
