In the general context of "government," something true and important about the ancient Athenian government is that, during the Classical Period in Greece, it was organized as a democracy. While it was not a "pure" democracy, since only relatively few citizens were able to vote and hold public office, it was nonetheless the first appearance of democracy in Western Civilization.
