These processes were already related, even in the oldest sources, as Herodotus, with cults (as that of armed Aphrodite) and rites (the Hybristika) of the city in which the assumption of “male” prerogatives (the deliberation and the war) on the part of the women had an essential role. In conclusion, the “democratization” of the city that follows Sepea is introduced in the ideological elaborations of those moments and subsequent ones with “face of woman”.
