Chapter 6 Section 2


How did the Pericles strengthen democracy?

Pericles was a member of an aristocratic family, but he supported democracy. Around 460 B.C., he became a leader of a democratic group. He introduced reforms that strengthened democracy. The most important change was to have the city pay a salary to its officials. This meant that poor citizens could afford to hold public office.

In addition to worshiping gods, the Greeks also honored mythical heroes like Achilles, whose great deeds are told in the Iliad.
