The entertainment between the two peoples differed greatly. The Greeks were more into discussions and conversation at their symposium. The Romans on the other hand preferred visual entertainment such as musicians, dancers, jugglers at their dinners. (This is not to say that the Greeks did not have this type of entertainment, but a loose comparison of the two cultures) Tragedies were popular in Greek theater also sophisticated comedy while the Romans liked bawdy, earthy comedy… Read More

Yes and no. Gladiatorial combat was not a Greek entertainment, it was strictly a Roman occurance. However, once Rome conquered Greece and Roman influence filtered into the East, gladiatorial contests became popular there.
It evolved from dancing in forest glades to the gods, to doing it in theatres and adding actors. It was a religious as well as entertainment activity.
In the ancient Greek language - in daily conversation, commerce, warfare, entertainment, the arts and other cultural activity.
Same as everyone else in Europe, there are bars, discos, music halls, theater, cinemas, sporting venues etc..
The ancient Greeks had many things for entertainment. At parties for entertainment they would have someone play the lyre or flute. They would watch woman dance naked or tell stories. Poetry and literacy was very important. There were poets who would travel all throughout the cities telling poems or stories and people would gather around the poet or story teller on their spare time. At the Greek theater there were plays shown. But these plays… Read More
The Ancient Greeks had many ways of enjoying themselves. One way is to have Olympic Games. Unlike now, they played alot of the time. Although this may sound wrong, men found great entertainment in women and sexual intercourse. Also, they found entertainment in different animals such as lions. More activity wise, they found entertainment in hunting, training, swordfighting, etc.
The Greeks would go out to parties, drink all night long, they would play a game called checkereds, the woman would clean and the men would work. They would go out to search for there favorite foods. Woman would also do yard work. When they were all out at a bar drinking people would go around singing and dancing to the sound of the lyre or flute. Dancing was a big part of the entertainment… Read More
They weren't "myths" to the Ancient Greeks. They believed in those stories as being factual and real, the way Christians view the events in the Bible. When we read myths, we are reading the stories of an ancient religion, not just stories made for entertainment.
Greek Mythology is just like the stories we tell today in books, films etc, and played the same role in the entertainment of the Ancient Greeks.
Greek citizens mostly told stories, but if they ever did go see a tournament, it would be a race or a simple sport like so.
You could say the same as today.Music,parties,races(with horses),dance and the famous battles between gladiators.Last but not least the Olympics(only for Greeks and Romans).
The original purpose of myths was for the Ancient Greeks to attempt to explain mysteries that they could not otherwise explain, but now myths are merely entertainment, as all other fantasy is.
It was a looting expedition by the Greeks into Asia Minor, which started in a failed attempt at the richest prize Troy, and was ended when the Greeks came back ten years later and sacked the city at great profit. It was celebrated by the strolling bards in Greece who sang the many versions of the story and provided popular entertainment.
Play and listen to music, perform and watch plays (comidies, dramas, tragities), make pottery and drawings, and take part in the Olymics which were held to honor the Greek gods. lol
they had plays. with alot of drama. ancient Greece started the drama scene. and everyone would go watch the plays. all male actors too
The Greeks are credited with development of what we call to day Entertainment. These, in general were open air events where stories of great heroism were told. One of the greatest story tellers of the time was Hommer. (not Simpson)
What physical features does Greece have that would encourage the Greeks to make their living from the sea?
Greece was very mountainous, meaning no one could really grow food very well. So the sea was used for travel AND for things like fishing and entertainment. It isn't really the physique of the Greeks that meant that they turned towards the sea. Hope that helps! :)
In the days before modern radio and TV, people gained entertainment through itinerant bards - poets who sang their poems. Then as the religious singing and dancing in the forest glades became transformed into stage plays in theatres, poetic dialogue was added and recited and danced and sung. Poetry was at the centre of religion and entertainment.
Impossible to say! We know that the ancient Greeks enjoyed some sort of entertainment that combined music and drama. But chances are that cavemen also enjoyed telling musical stories around the campfire.
The Greeks offered a series of games as sort of a sacrifice of entertainment to the gods. they would play these games to sort of show their thanks for their given abilities and the favor the gods had given the winners. Over time it originated to having more than just the Greeks compete and as it is today it is a competition now to basically seee which country is the best. ~DCHSGURL2012
The influence of Homer upon the ancient civilization of the Greeks is difficult to overstate, as it was so profound and widespread. Fundamentally, it may be said that Greek values, Greek history, Greek theology (and even particular religious practices), as well as the basic love of Greeks for storytelling as a teaching and an entertainment device were all derived from the Homeric epics.
I just learned about this today in Theater Arts. Theater was popular in all ancient countries mainly because it provided entertainment for all classes of people, not just the rich ones. Greek plays mostly just provided entertainment, but when civilians started realizing what a profit theater was, actors were started to be held above others. Comedies and tragedies are still exemplified in our movie plots and TV shows today. Greeks had theater mostly for enjoyment… Read More
They didn't really have any beliefs. Their tales of Gods and Goddesses on Mount Olympus and all the mythology weren't taken seriously. They were originally meant as moral tales, but soon became entertainment.

Without TV, they needed entertainment and loved to hear the strolling bard scome to town and sing the stories of their old heroes and their deeds, as in The Iliad and The Odyssey (each took three nights to perform).
We know from the Tanakh (Bible) about musical instruments, dance, wine and song. Beyond that, not much is said, since unlike the ancient Greeks, the Israelites (until mid-Second Temple times) did not build theaters or arenas.

The ancient Greeks did many things for their own entertainment. At home, symposid were dinner party meetings held for a man's enjoyment. They played handmade/weaved instruments. Example; the 'Lyre', a stringed instrument origanilly made of a tortise shell, consisting with anywhere between 3 and 12 strings, played with a plectrum (pick). Panpipes, flutes, and drums were also used. Inside, the Greeks would also play board games and/or cards. Achilles and Ajax created a game named… Read More

It is an opinion question. Basically the gods wanted the Greeks and Trojans to fight for their entertainment. If Helen had been kidnapped, which many thought she had, then it was an honorable cause. Since it appears Helen left of her own free will, then it is not an honorable cause.
