The Celebration of Athens
The city-state that has it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The land were equality saw no class
This idea of equality in the eyes of the law was mostly stressed during the reign of Solon.
The land were new ideas and learning were their main objectives
Art and Architecture
This temples has set forth a desire by all nations surrounding Athens to construct such a building with wonderful architectural accomplishments. All praises should be given to the Phidias an Athenian sculptor and other Athenian sculptors who created figures that were graceful, strong, and perfectly formed.
The citizens are always involved in the government
The members of the council were chosen by lot, so that every citizen had an equal chance of serving on the Council of Five Hundred, these reforms created a strong democratic state, which attracted the eyes of many.
There is no doubt Athens is greater than Sparta
On the other hand Sparta was so focused on their ARMY that their land and surroundings were literally crashing due to the surrendering of all they had to their army, which was very unhealthy for the city state
