Other Key Points
Pericles alluded to the rule of many, laws being used to secure justice, and the importance of
Greek city states were isolated making for a great proving ground for political units
Spartans developed a similar democratic system as that of Athens, but placed a greater emphasis
on the representation of various groups to various extent in government
Athens started as a monarchy and became an aristocracy before becoming a limited democracy,
tyranny and then direct democracy
