Reasons to live in Athens!
2.We are well educated. Unlike the Spartans, we have schools. Kids go to school and get the education they need. We are very smart and that helps us make new inventions such as a new way of writing, or make stories that explain natural phenomena.
3.We have a good army. The spartans may have an army, but ours is better. Our army goes to school, so they have really good battle strageties.
4.We are one of the oldest cities in the world. It is a huge honor to live here because it is one of the oldest cities in the world.
5.We have a large population. With our large population, you will never be lonely. You are guaranteed to make a friend or two.
6.We believe in the gods more than the Spartans. The Spartans don't really believe in the gods. Here in Athens, we have tombs just for the gods.
7.We are considered the "Cradle of Western civilization." We are the "birth place" of democracy,western philosophy and literature,the Olympic Games,political science,major mathematical principles and theatre.
8.We were given the olive tree. Athena gave us the olive tree. Some people believe that some of the trees planted in the 1200's are still making olives.
