Bay, Rita. "Slavery in Athens." Web log post. Rita Bay "Celebrating Romance across the Ages" Rita Bay, 08 Feb. 2012. Web. 17 Oct. 2013. In ancient Greece a new thing had started for the Athens and that are slaves.This fact that Rita Bay proves that ancient Greece, also had slaves of their own to help develop their own government and culture, yet with Sparta, its military. She studies the fact about the comparison with the slaves with

Africans and the slaves with Athens. The role, the conditions, and law were different with the Athens on how they treat their slaves. Slaves were acquired from war as a prisoner, slaves are owned by either the state or just privately. Athenian laws were created for these slaves, and they were rather much mostly treated humane than the slaves as Africans. Women can become nannies to take care of their own family. Slaves are welcomed formally in a family and depending on their education, can rise to the highest position, they may be buried with the family also. But, depending on the owner they can be severally punished if the slaves ran away and the government can punish by 50 ways according to the law of Athenians. In the Athenian years, women are treated like nothing. Only men were far more important and get to have education, but the women didnt needed to cook or do any house things. They just sit there and look pretty and men just past by them as ghost, but luckily marriage is still made to women, how else will they produce more population anyways?

Garys fascination of mystery drove him to create fiction books about things including Murders of Ancient Athen, but.. in a game?This shows the rights of men playing such a game just like an Olympics and yet having a mystery of death occurring.
