Some New Considerations about Evergetism in Asia Minor. The Hellenistic Period and the First Century BC

Alina Cantacuz

Abstract


This paper identifies new perspectives on the phenomenon of evergetism in Asia Minor, during the Hellenistic period and the first century BC. I pointed out, through epigraphic research, how benefactors donated to the city, acted noble, generous and received in exchange honors and privileges, as the Council and the Assembly decided. It was not only about their personal need of recognition it was a way of living rich man with the others, citizens with foreigners, about moral civic behaviors.


Keywords


benefactions; benefactors; finances; honors; privileges; goodwill.
