reaction to city walls?
- Dear All,
I'm wondering if there are any reports in antiquity of the reaction of
neighboring towns when another town erects a city wall?
Is this usually met with hostility, indifference, or what? Are there any
reports of this nature in contemporary texts?
Thanks for any help. Apologies for cross-posting.
All the best,
