Abstract:

Ancient authors often define the man through nutrition and politics, which makes them closely related. Food played a particularly important role in the ancient Hellenic thinking and behavior model. Dietary culture means how food is produced in local conditions, climate, relief, how it is handled, when and how people eat, what is the social context of nutrition, what appliances for preparing and serving food are used ... But food and nutrition have their own social context in which a broad aspect of a variety of forms of communication is realized. The article is an attempt to reconstruct the rhythm of eating and social-political reflexes in his specific forms of communication.

Keywords:

nutrition/eating, culture of eating, social context of nutrition, rhythm of eating, Ancient Greece, social-political reflexes.
