The Treaty of 376/5 BC – A New Interpretation *
The article addresses the issue of a peace treaty between Carthage and Dionysius I of Syracuse, related by Diodorus Siculus in his Library of History (15.17.5). While maintaining the identification of the Halycus river as the Platani, the article offers a new interpretation of the treaty, by arguing that it created a new category of territories in the western part of the island, leaving the Greek cities east of the Halycus river paying tribute to the Carthaginians until the arrival of Timoleon of Corinth.
