Greek- Athenian- Roman women; offensive- defensive warfare; weapons; honour
 
Description The present article explores the often ambivalent relationship ourancient sources had with the role of women in times of war, from theHomeric to the early Byzantine period. The article takes the view thatthese roles were not something invariably imposed by men, but werepart of a more general societal development, in which women as much as men supported the status quo, and for a variety of reasons.
