This is why Athens is better than Sparta and is the greatest civilization of ancient Greece. Athens government is better than Sparta’s government because they did everything by voting. Athens never went to war and Sparta always went to war. Athens did math, writing, and fittness. Sparta always had their children do training for their whole lives while Athens’s boys went to military school for two years. Athens invented the first olympics which meant that they were in physical shape and that their gods/goddesses would award them. Athens also did arts for their gods and goddesses. They made sculptures and palaces for their gods and goddesses. Sparta did not do any arts they still fought in wars and they thought that the greatest fighter would get rewarded but they didn’t. This proves why Athens is better than Sparta and is one of the greatest civilizations in ancient Greece.
Athens were also great artists many of their Works inspired artists even today.
Athens also established a lot of trade where they could not make many of the resources to survive.

Reflection of Ancient Athens of Our World
Ancient Greece created a lot of great structures and a fair government system. Today we have borrowed some of those ideas to make them our own, Like the Parthenon and the senate.
Athenian democracy created an assembly that disgust important topics like new laws and buildings. Today we vote or talk about similar things and it hasn't really changed that much. Patrician men, older than twenty, benefited and could public hold office. In most states only free Greek men were citizens.
On the other hand, Athenian women did housework, clean, babysit, stayed inside, and couldn’t decide who her husband would be. Athenian women had no rights. Women were supposed to do household chores like cooking and cleaning . The women were not taught how to read, do math, or write.
In conclusion, ancient Athenian architecture, innovations and government has survived and influenced many cultures of today.
