Question and answer
To what extent can a proxenos be described as a diplomat?
The proxeny decrees, which amount to letters of patent and resolutions of appreciation were issued by one state to a citizen of another for service as proxenos, a kind of honorary consul looking after the interests of the other state’s citizens. [ The Proxenos hosted foreign ambassadors at his own expense, in return for the honorary title. Being another city's Proxenos did not preclude taking part in war against that city, should it break out - since the Proxenos' ultimate loyalty was to his own city. However, a Proxenos would naturally try his best to prevent such a war from breaking
out and to compose whatever differences were threatening to cause it. And once peace negotiations were on the way, a Proxenos' contacts and goodwill in the enemy city could be profitably used by his city. ]
