I have a question about Greek economies... Did they use printed money because you said their methods of trade were more modern and used a little bartering. I may have missed it.
No, they did not. Their currency would be gold or silver coinage. Even the US used gold or silver in their coins up through the early 20th century. By a more modern economy I mean that they had: 1) Commercial Financing; ie banks would loan money to finance trade, 2) coinage, and 3) they competed for business by offering incentives to traders. .
Oh okay! Thanks!
so almost every body was metice
could the richer people vote like the doctors and ect. And what class did more of voting
A doctor could only vote if he was a citizen of Athens. That means that their parents had to be Athenian. That is the Polite class. They had the most control over the government and were the only group that could vote. The rest couldn't. Even though the rest couldn't vote, that didn't mean the other classes couldn't influence the Polites. A Metic could approach a Polite and try to influence him in his decision on laws. They didn't have a direct link to government but do have an indirect link.
