In ancient Greece we find two forms of political exclusion from community borders, physical as well as symbolic, atimia and ataphia. Both are the consequences of actions judged contrary to citizen’s right behavior and punished severely by the polis. These forms of punishment are dealt also by Plato and Aristotle, especially when they write about their ideal State. Starting with the analysis of some passages of these authors, we will center on the relationship of atimia and ataphia with the political space of the community.
