(7.) Central to the polemic is whether the Athenian Standards Decree (IG [I.sup.3] 1453; see, e.g., SEG XLVIII 58) and the Egesta
Decree (IG [I.sup.3] 11; see, e.g., SEG XLVIII 55) are to be dated about the middle of the 5th century or in its last quarter.
The fed anemones produced no visible fecal pellets or egesta
, perhaps because the proteinaceous lenses (average [W.sub.w] = 23 mg, which was [approximately equal to] 1% of the anemones' average fresh weight) were completely absorbed (a 1% ration of brine shrimps would be at least 90% absorbed: Zamer, 1986).
H., et al., 1990: `Athens' alliance with Egesta
in the year of Antiphon', ZPE 83: 38-63
Acestes In Greek mythology, legendary king of Segesta (Greek: Egesta
) in Sicily.
By intervening on behalf of Corcyra, Plataea, or Egesta
, Athens took the position of helping the weaker party against a bully, just as Theseus does in helping the unfortunate Argives.(69) While there is something anachronistically compelling to modern Americans in Theseus' conduct of a "limited war," the problems in limiting military objectives and the difficulty of restraint once aggressive action has begun are derivable from the traditional accounts of Xerxes' folly.(70) There is also a striking parallelism between what Theseus does and what Adrastos did, in attempting to make good the "just" claims of Polyneikes (152-54).(71) In order to keep himself clear of the pitfalls, Theseus must make some strong distinctions and achieve miracles of restraint.
An embassy from Egesta
, Sicily, sought Athenian help against its rival city of Selinus.
comes from Chambers, Gallucci, and Spanos (1990), who find three-barred sigmas in the inscription recording an alliance between Athens and Egesta
(IG [I.sup.3] 11), which they down-date from 458/7 B.C.
On the following day, egesta
produced from each anemone was removed a few hours prior to that day's feeding.
