The Greek Ephebate in the Roman Period
This study concerns itself with several aspects of citizen training systems in Greek cities during the Roman imperial period, a largely neglected area of study. Problems of interpretation such as the noticeable decline in epigraphical evidence are confronted and possible solutions proposed. The scope and significance of athletic and military training are surveyed and the likelihood of a connection with the Roman army assessed. Finally, the fates of ephebic systems and the physical plants associated with them under the Christian Empire are briefly sketched.
