Abstract This article compares the social and economic reforms implemented in the 5th century BCE Jerusalem by the Persian governor Nehemiah with those of the Athenian political leader Solon who lived in the 6th century and who carried out similar agrarian, social and political reforms in his city. The article follows the lead of M. Smith, E. Yamauchi and M. Weinfeld who made some fruitful comparisons between the actions of these two leaders. The analysis does not postulate any direct influence between the two but simply attempts to show that cities on both sides of the Mediterranean shoreline in the 6th and 5th centuries faced acute economic and political crises which called for very similar interventions by their political leaders who had to implement comparable urgent measures.
