The Ancient Hellenic (Greek) civilizations. They gave us the ideas of a republic and governance as well as learning and philosophy. They laid the foundations of modern science… and gave birth to modern maths, logic, and the concept of a mathematic proof. However the Greek civilization is said to have been greatly influenced in the beginning by Ancient Egypt. If we are looking at inventions many other civilizations have contributed such as Ancient China who gave us paper, gunpowder and many other. Mesopotamia gave us the wheel. It is difficult to say that one civilization was the most influential because most of them are interrelated. However it is generally accepted that Ancient Greece experienced a "Golden Age" during which extraordinary advancements where made in all the main aspects of modern civilization.
Sparta, Athens, Corinth, Delphi, Thebes, and Aegina were important cities in Greece. There were other cities outside Greece that were also important Greek cities, because of c…olonization, and these include Syracuse, Alexandria, Marsailles (called Massalia in ancient), and Naples (which was called Neopolis).
What are 2 geographic features of ancient Greece what are the effects on the city-states of ancient Greece?
Mountains, rivers and seas which split the country up and promoted the formation of city-states with their own patch of land and a fortified city in its midst. I…n defending themselves and pillaging each other they created on-going wars and alliances which changed according to self-interest at any particular time. Also, the limited land of each city, and the ability of the people to breed at a rate beyond the capacity of the land to support them, even outstripping the war attrition, meant that the cities periodically sent out surplus populations to seize new land and form new cities, which eventually were established around the Black and Mediterranean Sea littorals.
Athens, Sparta, Thebes ,Corinth (along with Argos and Mycenae before their destruction) andtheshes herton were the main cities in Ancient Greece.
The ancient Greek world was comprised of a couple of thousand independent city-states stretching from Spain to Asia Minor. So there was no 'Greece' or capital of Greece - …the Greeks were a people not a nation as in today's term. There were major cities such as Thebes, Corinth, Athens, Sparta, Syracuse, Miletus, but as there was no country, there was no capital. Each city was the 'capital' or centre of its territory.
This varied over time -some expanded, others shrank as a result of wars and famines. At various times the list included Argos, Corinth, Sparta, Athens, Thebes.
Ancient Greece had city-states such as Sparta and Athens. Corinth, Sikyon, Thebes, Argos, Mykenae, Delphi and Olympia are some more city- states located in Ancient Greece.
