Homer is best known for writing Greek epics or poems.
He was set free because of his skill at story telling.
No Aesop was illiterate. All his fable were first an oral tradition then somebody wrote them down.
He wrote The Iliad and The Odyssey.
Not only did he write the Iliad and the Odyssey...
He helped to organize the pantheon of Greek gods, he gave the Greeks role models to live up to, and he wrote about a period of history that would have otherwise been forgotten.
Homer wrote about the Trojan War and it's aftermath. The Trojan War happened during the Greek Dark Ages (c. 1100-800 BCE). The only written history that tells the story of the dark ages are Homer's epic poems.HE DIED ABOUT 800 BC
Most ancient people had no "first" or "last" name, just a name. Greek citizens would have a patronymic, "Hippolytos, the son of Timon," but Aesop was a slave from Thrace, and his father's name is not recorded. Therefore, his only known name is "Aesop".
Yes they did have some forms of newspapers. The first of which was called the 'Acta Diurna' meaning Daily Acts sometimes translated as Daily Public Records. This was a sort of bulletin. However many Romans were illiterate so they couldn't read them.
Well.. this is a difficult issue actually, due to the youth of history (in a properly recorded manner)
Homer is attributed to Greek myth and tragedy.. though not necesserily one person.. he is read as one nevertheless
Homer died in Ios, of a disease he had contracted on his arrival. He was buried near the shore of the island of Ios, by his companions, and those citizens who had visited him during his illness.
The national government never did itemized the total cost, but there are some private estimates that suggest up to 30 million 1936 dollars.
At the Battle of Marathon, the Persians and Athenians fought. The Persians outnumbered them, but Athens still won.
The Athenian and Plataian infantry remained in the hills around the Plain of Marathon where they were safe from the Persian cavalry. They were awaiting the reinforcement of the Spartan army.
The observed the Persian cavalry being embarked, and took the opportunity to run down and defeat the inferior Persian infantry unprotected by its cavalry, and routed them.
They then realised the Persian cavalry was being shipped around Cape Sounion to land near Athens and gallop up and take the undefended city as the gates were opened by traitors within. They ran back the 26 miles to the city and formed up in front of the gates just in time. The Persians gave up and went home.
The Athenians made this run in sandals, carrying armour and weapons, after having already fought the battle at Marathon.
Today's marathon runners who think they replicate this run get it pretty easy by comparison.
Greece has sent athletes to the Winter Olympics to participate in alpine skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, luge, skeleton, bobsleigh, and biathlon without winning any medals.
they died like five times and revived 6
they make big butts
The Roman legion maintains many distinctive elements from the Greek phalanx: Tightly-packed, heavily-armored soldiers who used spears and walls of large, overlapping shields. There are differences, however, such as the Romans using tower shields instead of the round ones that the Greeks used, and also a completely different command structure.
The concept of the Roman republic is also derived from the Greek democracy, albeit in a more abstract form. In Athens anybody who was eligible to vote could vote on any proposal, but in Rome you only vote for the person who represents you and that person then votes on proposals on your behalf.
Perhaps most obviously, the Roman gods are largely renamed versions of the Greek gods. Juno is Zeus, Venus is Aphrodite, etc. There are differences in how they're viewed by their respective cultures, but in general the gods and the stories about them are the same ones.
A major accomplishment of the Cleisthenes was that as before ,all the male citizens could participate in the assembly and vote on laws. Assembly members could now discuss issues freely, hear legal and appoint army officals.
Satire were plays that made fun of Greek legends.
Something that cannot be divided any further.
a tomes means : Volume A
Pericles changed the Athenian society by proposing a new type of government to take effect. He wanted to start a democracy where all male Athenians could be involved with governmental decisions.
By making them in human or at least anthropomorphic they are relatable, by making them perfect they are unattainable and superior.
A dance performed in Greek tragedies
Greeks offered sacrifices (didn't like human sacrifices, and if they forgot a god the god they forgot would avenge it) to the gods
Everywhere they settled, but they chose the sites with a good view. For instance, there is one of their theaters in southern Italy and it has a view of the coast. They thought of the whole environment and atmosphere that they presented.
With hard work.
