Greece: A Marbleous Civilization

By Maya Houser

We've Got It All

From superior military tactics to new political structures, Ancient Greece has it all. Most city-states have aristocratic assemblies in charge of government, such as Sparta. Cornith has an oligiarchy, where a few powerful people were in charge of the government. The world's first democracy began in Athens, giving many people a say in politics. Our economy flourishes through the practice of agriculture, trade, slavery (hetlots), and even the manufacturing of luxury goods. There is truly something for everyone here in Ancient Greece.

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit." -Aristotle

Greek Culture

Here in Ancient Greece, we have a unique society. Family structure is important to us in Ancient Greece. The role of the woman and the man vary by city-state, but for the most part women have imperative economic functions even though, the father/husband is in charge of the family. However, women typically are inferior to men in terms of culture and law. We aren't flawless, but we are pretty happy.
