The Spartan system appears as an exception among the many plans that were born and developed in Greece during antiquity. Often admired but also strongly criticized, it was an oligarchy, where power rested in the hands of an elite few, but it was also an aristocracy, where the civic body which was very small, commanded less power and was dependent. 'Hellenica' is a work in seven books dealing with the period 411BC-362BC and the composition of which probably extends over forty years. The story is simple, lucid and presents fine portraits of psychology. The work is an essential source of information about a period of confusion. Here, Xenophon presents a text about a conspiracy against the Homoioi. The latter is presented as a real threat against the Spartans but was this group really a threat? What was their role in this conspiracy? Where and why was it organized?
