It reached a peak during the 5th Century BCE, especially in western Asia Minor and the Islands which led the way, and to a lesser degree at Athens when it could afford it before it lost its empire atthe end of that century.

There was a secondary surge in the 2nd and 1st Centuries BCE under the patronage of the Macedonian kings of the Hellenistic Kingdoms which were formed out of the empire of Alexander after his death, when even the hellenised Jewish aristocracy had their foreskins surgically restored so they could appear Greek when naked at the public baths.

Ancient Greece is described as the glory of an ancient civilization bcause it was one of the most civilized countries of it's time. This was one of the first civilazations to have no human sacrafices to the gods and to have scholars and playwrights. It was in the ancient city of Athens that logic was born. Ancient Greece was not just the glory of ancient civilization, it was the begging of western civilization, where the hypothetical flame first started burning because it was one of the first modern civilazations.

The ancient Greece civilization had many characteristics but the most important one is bravery. It fought so many wars and also won so many. This is a true trait. :)
