What are facts about pericles?
he rebuilt the Parthenon
well he was from an aristocratic family, but believed in democracy. He was the most powerful man in Athenian politics. He acted in the best interest of Athens. also his speech about fallen soldiers during the Peloponnesian war, "Our constitution favors the many instead of the few. That is why it is called a democracy. If we look at the laws, we see they they give equal justice to all.... Poverty does not bar the way, if a man is able to serve the state.... In short, I say that as a city we are the school for all Greece" (the ancient world textbook 6th grade page 174)
