This article by and large is a summary of my research on tribal participation and solidarity in fifth century Athens. Nonetheless it does consider dithyrambic competitions in some detail to provide a case study of a tribal activity with no, or next to no, non-elite participation, and the manning of the fifth century navy as a detailed example of a civic activity which has been erroneously linked with the Kleisthenic tribes.
