The many hundreds of Greek city-states which stretched from Spainand Africa to Asia Minor around the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegeanand Black Seas during the period 600 BCE to… 500 CE.
they were the same government.
Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome were actually quite similar. Theywere both democratic. However, Greece had much more art than Romedid.
There was always a range of leaders in both communities - varying from conservative oligarchs ('the few') to radical populists (Greek demagogues , 'leaders of the people'; …Roman populares ). The essential thing was that they came, with very rare exceptions, from the aristocracy (the 'best people'). As the Greek historian Polybius said about Rome 'although it was a democracy, they always elected the best people'. Basically, a would-be leader turned to the people when his faction was losing in a dispute amongst the aristocrats. Athens had its oligarchs and demagogues, Rome had its patrician and 'new men' leaders contesting power. There was little different between the approaches and techniques used, and indeed there is little different in the leaders of today.
Ancient Greece (Hellas as they called it) was distributed around the Mediterranean and Black Seas . It was not a country but hundreds of independent city-states which adopt…ed Greek (Hellenic as they called it) culture. These cities were scattered around the coastlines and islands from Spain, southern France, southern Italy, Sicily, north Africa, Asia Minor to southern Russia (those are the present country names - they were different then). (see map link) When Alexander the Great captured the Persian Empire and he and his successors promoted Hellenism in those areas too , but it was mostly a veneer, and faded quickly in the outlying areas. His empire was split up amongst his generals, who made themselves into kings (Hellenistic Kingdoms) and grabbed what they could in the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Rome progressively absorbed them into its empire by the end of the 1st Century BCE.
Greeks worshiped many gods + goddesses. The Romans were polytheistic, and were often part of cults such as the the cult if Isis. Rome took the Greek gods and changed the names…. Many Romans became Christians when Christianity came alive as a small sect of Judaism.
same government and military
Since someone placed this answer in the "shopping" category, I will assume they meant to compare the shopping in ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. The shopping in ancient E…gypt was awesome, their open air marketplaces were home to merchants from all over the world. Even later on, when Egypt was reduced to being a client state of Rome, the shopping was still boss. Greece, on the other hand, had masterful craftsmen, but each city state had its own specialty. For example, Thebes was renowned for its pottery. To enjoy a full selection, you had to walk all over Greece. Whew.
Check this out on the internet and libraries...you will find the answer...be perseverant;)
they were in Greece today as separated city-states (countries) with one culture, then they spreaded their culture throughout the civilized world from India to Egypt including …mesopotamia, turkey, Iran and other countries.
There are many things that you can compare like the Greeklanguage and several dialects in various areas of Greece , theGreek mentality and culture also have many similarities …withAncient Greece. . A great difference is that ancient Greece referred to a culture,not a country. The Greek world comprised over 2,000 independentcity-states which were established all around the Mediterranean andBlack Seas, with major clusters in today's Greece, Sicily, Italy,the Aegean Islands and Turkey.

Greece is a country existing from the 19 th centuryonwards. Ancient Greece is a phrase for all the cities-states inthe area where the Greek state is located today.
The modern U.S. democratic model bears several strong similarities to that of ancient Greece. The U.S. government is divided into the three branches: legislative, executive an…d judicial. Likewise, the Athenian democracy of Ancient Greece was divided into the Ekklesia, which was similar to the legislative, or law-making branch, the Boule, which resembled the executive, or law-enforcing branch, and the Dikasteria, a rough equivalent of the judicial branch. This ancient model, though, while serving as a useful example upon which to build future democracies, has been significantly improved upon.
