The difference between the policies initiated by Hippocrates and those carried out previously by the Greek cities is great: Greek cities had carried out a process of control and influence over their environs within a dynamic of expanding frontiers (Vallet 1983b, 942–5). However, the new policies of Hippocrates forced Gela to intervene in areas in which it had never before shown the slightest interest.
