A compendium of essays presented at the first Alexander Onassis Center Biennial Conference on Hellenism, held in honor of Robert Browning, the first recipient of the Gold Medal for excellence in Hellenic studies. It is the first concise study of the relationship between the sea and the Greeks from antiquity through modern times. Section I deals with the maritime phenomenon from archaic Greece to Graeco-Roman trade in the Indian Ocean. Section II covers Byzantine traders and their effect on Byzantium, and Section III includes essays on the Greek Diaspora in the Mediterranean and Black Sea (1815-1861), and the post-war emergence of the Greeks as the foremost merchant mariners in the world. This volume provides a fascinating examination of an aspect of Greek culture that is as profound as it is far-reaching.
