This discussion on the 2 sides is pretty vague, as no specific time period or ruler was mentioned, which is important in the tides of battle. But it seems that China wins by majority because of their advances in weapons. Rome has a high chance though, with their industrial prowess and ability to adapt in war.
In Ancient Greece, males were the obvious overruling power. Women were to be house-sitters and produce children. Meals were hearty, including servings of fish, fruits, bread, and wine. Meat aside from fish was preserved for special occasions. The difficult menial labor was filled by domestic servants and slaves.
