Untitled[edit]

This page combines two distinct concepts:

1. The phratria of ancient Greece, which began as a kinship group that cross-cut tribe (phyle) affiliation,

and 2. the anthropological kinship term phratry which is based loosely on the Greek usage.

I would fix this, but I don't know how.

Also, the Ancient Greek kinship system and societal organization should be part of or linked to some other page, perhaps the Social Structure section of Ancient Greece.

Have tried to address this, but I'm not familiar with the scholarship. What you say about the phratry cutting across phyle affiliation is vexing, since the article says otherwise. Will try to do a quick and superficial fix of that next. Cynwolfe (talk) 12:54, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
