Abstract :
This article suggests interpreting the status of Diotimos in the Chabrias Monument and Chares in the accounts of Aeneas the Tactician and Diodorus as admirals of the Athenian navies stationed in Syros and Corcyra, respectively, rather than as commanders of Athenian garrisons on those islands, which has been the usual understanding. Stationing soldiers on ships helped Athens to formally abide by her pledge to keep member states of the Second Athenian League autonomous and ungarrisoned.
