  • Athenian Citizens
    309 words
    The average Athenian was poorly paid, uneducated, and probably would rather watch athletic contests than go to the theater. Yet, amazingly, fifth-century Athens became a fountainhead of Western civilization in the study of history, architecture, sculpture, philosophy, and drama. No one can really explain why all this happened in that city at that time unless it was because the Athenians' enormous spirit and energy led them to explore their world with a keen eye and an open mind.
