Research on this article began when I was Rome Scholar at the British School at Rome in 1996–7 (cf. De Angelis, 1998); I would like to acknowledge the School's support, which made possible an extended period of fieldwork in Sicily. Earlier versions of parts of this article were presented at the St Andrews conference ‘Sicily from Aeneas to Cicero: new approaches in archaeology and history’ (6–7 June 1998), and at the Vienna conference ‘The Aegean and the western Mediterranean: relations and interaction eighth-fifth century BC’ (24–7 March 1999), during which the participants and audience made several useful comments. I am also very grateful to the late David Asheri, Gordon Davies, Robin Osborne and the anonymous referees of this paper for their very helpful comments on earlier drafts of the full version; any remaining errors or misjudgements are my own responsibility. I dedicate this article to the late John Lloyd, who very much encouraged and supported my work on Greek Sicily.
