The various accounts of Miletus' foundation and the lists of the ancient names of the city belong to a complex process articulated on several levels: first, the foundation accounts reflect the perception of the community's beginning which each ethnic component had; second, the lists of the city's names arise from the need of each component of claiming its position in the Milesian community. The ethnic tension perceptible in these accounts would arise at the time of the birth of the polis.

Abstract

The various accounts of Miletus' foundation and the lists of the ancient names of the city belong to a complex process articulated on several levels: first, the foundation accounts reflect the perception of the community's beginning which each ethnic component had; second, the lists of the city's names arise from the need of each component of claiming its position in the Milesian community. The ethnic tension perceptible in these accounts would arise at the time of the birth of the polis.
