The relationship between tyrannical rulers and the people has been a topic of contention among ancient and modern historians alike. This panel will consider rulers and regimes from archaic Greece to imperial Rome, and across the Mediterranean, to explore the interdependence between tyrannical and autocratic rulers and the people, and the ways in which their interactions influenced political forms and institutions.
