This paper shows that the forming of Athenian tradition relating to the Euboean colonization can be dated back to the first half of the sixth century. It hands down the memory of figures such as Pandorus, Aeclus, Cothus and Ellopos, who belonged to a cadet branch of the Athenian royal lineage. Accounts regarding these heroes have not yet been studied by scholars, probably because they come to us through late traditions, and therefore have been judged as untruthful and of little historical interest. But, on the contrary, they imply a complex of relations interwoven by Athens, Euboea, Thessaly and Boeotia during the sixth century B.C., and throw light on Athenian perception of its ethnicity and identity. Furthermore, our evidence suggests that the Athenians might have aimed to organized the conquered Euboean lands according to a territorial system quite similar to that of Sparta.
