They are modern terms that try to frame various aspects of change in Greek culture which by no means occurred either over one particular year or all together in the same year.In the Archaic Period there were vast changes in Greek language, society, art, architecture, and politics.594 BCE), whose historical authenticity is more certain than Draco's due to fragments of his poetry that Plutarch relates as still existing in his time.Whilst Aristotle comments that there was nothing particular about the laws, what is important is that the laws, for the first time in Athens, were written down for all to see, and to read (for those who were literate).The next major changes that came were brought about by Solon (c.

The politics of Athens underwent a series of serious changes during the archaic period, and the first change was quite possibly for the worse, with the laws of Draco, in around 622/621 BCE (the semi-legendary nature of these laws and its namesake should be noted, and secondly the semi-legendary nature of most occurrences during the first couple of hundred years of the period).As Aristotle says of Draco “there is nothing peculiar in his laws that is worthy of mention, except their severity in imposing heavy punishment” ( 2.1274b).The legacy of their infamy (loans could be made on the security of one’s own person), still exists in the modern word ‘draconian’.Most brutal of all however were the death penalties; Plutarch relates that “it is said that Draco himself, when asked why he had fixed the punishment of death for most offences, answered that he considered these lesser crimes to deserve it, and he had no greater punishment for more important ones”.

This would then fuel, in a rather circular way, more cultural changes.
