Slavery in Ancient Greece wasn't as bad as some other places but still really bad. Most of the population was slaves. When a city was conquered most often the people conquered were sold as slaves. Barbarians kidnapped non Greek men and women and sold them as slaves. Most slaves got paid a little bit so they had a chance at freedom.
