Spartans VS. Athens
Why Athens is the place to be!
Brains Over Brawn
In Athens they deeply value intellectual strength. Every male learns to read and write as well as how to play an instrument. In Sparta however you most likely will only go through physical training and therefore will be uneducated.
Athenian soldiers were very skilled in both strategy and physical strength, the Spartan army was more skilled at physical combat than mental.
