Example text

Since they have no rights the liberty which they enjoy is a precarious blessing. If a hired man asks for the pay which has been promised him he is told that he will be sold in a distant island. Whoever is unable to defend himself is liable to be carried off by the slave-trade. In whatever way a man or a woman may have been reduced to slavery, his first master generally gets rid of him as soon as possible. The warrior keeps some servant-women and a concubine, and trades in the rest. Transactions are some­ times effected at great distances.

We also know that in professional industFy the trades which were truly separated were as yet only distinguished by their raw material, and numbered only four, the tekton (wood and stone), the chalkeus (metal), the skytotomos (leather), and the kerameus (clay). Clearly industry is not highly developed, Let us try to see more closely the point at which it had arrived. There was only one kind of workshop-the forge. A special plant was absolutely necessary to manufacture a strong or delicate article of metal.

Thus there is no idea of protectionism, and competition is carried on at distances, freely. Only in the big towns, where several craftsmen exercise the same calling, can competitio� become local. Paris chooses the best masons in Troy. Increase in popula­ tion had to stimulate movement everywhere before the people of Hesiod's time could make a proverb of the rivalry of potter with potter, of carpenter with carpenter. The essential features of industry in the Homeric age give the impression that it was not yet much developed.
