This chapter examines the protocols in ancient Greece that allowed citizens to act in groups or engage in collaboration. It argues that there were no significant internal hierarchies on Athenian boards and analyzes some of the rituals through which these boards created and enacted their equality, solidarity, and leadership. This chapter also explores the possibilities and limitations of leadership in the case of the deliberations of the leaders of the army of the Ten Thousand.
