Athens was a democracy.Democracy means“exercise of powerby the whole people”,but by“the whole people’’the Greeks meantonly the adult male citizens,and citizenship was a set of rights whicha man inherited from his father.Women,children,foreigners andslaves were excluded.They had no rights.

The economy of Athens rested on an immense amount of slavelabour.Slaves worked on farms and in workshops and mines ownedby their masters.There was harsh exploitation in Greek society.

The Greeks loved sports.Once every four years,they had a bigfestival on Olympus Mount which included contests of sports.Thusbegan the Olympic Games.Revived in 1896,the Games have becomethe world’s foremost amateur sports competition.3.Homer

Ancient Greeks considered Homer to be the author of theirepics.He probably lived around 700 B.C.Two such epics,the Iliadand the Odyssey,have survived.They are not about events ofHomer’s own time,but about great men and wars of a remoter age,probably in the period 1200——1100 B.C.

The IIlad deals with the alliance of the states of the southernmainland of Greece,led by Agamemnon in their war against the cityof Troy.The heroes are Hector on the Trojan side and Achilles andOdysseus on the Greek.In the final battle,Hector was killed byAchilles and Troy was sacked and burned by the Greeks.
