Tyranny

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Ancient Greek Civilization

Tyranny

Taught by Professor Jeremy McInerney | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Contrary to our modern definition of tyranny, the Greek word originally meant the seizing of power by an ambitious man. The tyranny of Peisistratus and his sons kept the peace in Athens and nurtured its prosperity for more than 50 years.
