The World of Achaemenid Hellas Chapter 2:Eimi! or Vartaiyaiy!

The second chapter of the timeline expounds more diverse information, focusing mostly on the Greeks in self imposed exile from their conquered homeland but also providing information on other cultures of the Western Mediterranean.


Meaning of the Chapter Title

Eimi, or more properly Eîmi, is εἶμι, Ancient Greek for 'I go'. Vartaiyaiy is Old Persian for 'I turn myself'. Both refer to the movement of Hellenes into their western colonies following the Achaemenid conquest, along with the wider changes that begin to take place as a result.
