The interpretation of Linear B: laós(‘people’) and ágein (‘to lead’) translated as to lead people, like that of an army commander, governing figure etc.
Mycenaean word derived from linear B texts for an authority figure second in command after the King, like a Governor.
The Lawagetas was involved in state campaigns and had their own staff- they were incredibly powerful figures just behind the Wanax (King) who was given divine kingship, ie most important non god-like deity.


Solon’s name for third class Athenians citizens. These people were given full citizenship rights, however were not admitted to the highest authority. These people were categorised as rich enough for their land to be prosperous (yielded between 200 and 300 bushels of barley or equivalent crop value) and therefore rich enough to serve in the army.
