Abstract

The fate of war captives has been extensively explored, as, indeed, has the way that fate affects both the conduct and course of hostilities. Nevertheless, little research has been conducted on the link that connects the two, namely the act of surrender, and this is especially true of classical Greece. This article seeks to remedy this situation by answering three interlinked questions, namely: how did men attempt to surrender on the battlefields of classical Greece?; in what tactical conditions did they do so?; and finally, what prospects did they have of surviving the process?
