Abstract: The characteristics of Athenian democracy in the fourth century BC differ from those of the fifth. No longer relevant was the social projection that was part of the reforms of Cleisthenes and Ephialtes, in which the rights of the poor were justified through their participation in the fleet and the empire. In Athens, as in other Greek cities, the term demokratia continued to be applied to the extent that the ekklesia and the boule remained as representative organs, although it is known that their powers were severely restricted or supervised by powerful euergetai or even by a foreign state. The city underwent fierce tension as a result of the attempt by oligarchs to control the democracy, which made resistance a necessity. The conflict was resolved in favour of restrictions, with the support of the Macedonian monarchy. In the end, democracy would be reduced to a propaganda term, surviving only under the protection of the Hellenistic basileis.
