Abstract

IN THE STRUGGLE UNDERWAY in the seventh and sixth centuries, money appeared, following the example of Corinth, as a subtle and detailed instrument; while the land was being divided up, it allowed indebtedness to be maintained along with all the inequalities linked to it; it thus enabled political power (scarcely shifted) to be kept in the hands of the wealthy property owners.
