Athens and Sparta were two exceptionally powerful, well-known city-states in Ancient Greece. Athens was a Direct Democracy; meaning every male citizen participates directly in government decision-making, lead by an assembly of over 6,000 male citizens and a council of 500. Sparta, on the other hand, was an oligarchy, meaning lead by a few, ruled by two kings, a council of elders, and an assembly. Although both cities had effective systems of running their government, the Spartan government was a more efficient government than Athens. Athens was in fact a democracy and though it gave more freedom to its citizens, there were just too many people to run the government in anyway but chaotic.

Since the Greek language is so flexible, nearly all the upper-class Romans of the late republic and early empire used Greek for philosophical discussion and even for love-making. Greek language was the last words Julius Caesar used at the actual moment of his murder, and the emperor Marcus Aurelius kept his private spiritual diary in Greek. Back then, Greek language was a very international language to the European countries. English: Dark Age Of all the great modern European languages, English has by far the largest and most important early literature; and of course there was a huge amount of influence by Greek and Roman, beginning from the language itself. An example of English literature is an epic called Beowulf.
The Romans influenced such a vast area of the world for an extended amount of time due to their superior engineering skills. Aqueducts are one of their many inventions and arguably the greatest of their time and many years after. Before aqueduct technology, humans were restricted to build cities around natural water sources such as springs and rivers. These restricted cities grew crowded—not to mention also feculent and odious due to lack of a sewer system. Aqueducts enabled the Romans to grow in many different aspects including the size of their empires and their army.
