The most famous city states in ancient Greece were Athens and Sparta. Dont think of Greece as a single country, they never were, more like every city having its own rules laws… and independance from all others occasionally some would be able to influence others with military alliances and such but all were very independent.
Sparta because they decided to expand around that time and went to war and eventually took over every city-state they crossed
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.
Athens at its peak had about 250,000 people.

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.

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.
It varied over time - Argos, Sparta, Athens, Thebes.
Athens, Thebes, and Sparta were the three most powerful Greek City-States.
