Solon

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Famous Greeks

Solon

Taught by Professor J. Rufus Fears | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Athenian democracy owes much to Solon (638–559 B.C.), a truly wise man who used his mind to serve his country. Many figures of archaic Greek history are hardly more than names to us, but this is not true of Solon. His poetry survives and offers us unique insights into the values and motives of this statesman whom our own Founders so admired.
