Love is so beautiful, and the Greeks understood its importance in the ancient world. Having six type of definitions of love makes expressing the love emotion more meaningful. Everyone should continue to practice and to encourage Agape love, which is showing to love to everyone.

Karina Moreno's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:22 PM

Another reason, why I have always found ancient Greece history fascinating is because they were such well develops cities in their ancient times.  While other cities around them barely had a stable system to run their cities, most of Greece by then has a well establish economy, military, and government.  Investigating artifacts and scrolls has given a small glimpse of their everyday life.  In cities, such as Athens, men were the only citizens while women were not; women were to be at home and bear chidrens.  About a quarter of the population were slaves that were prisoners of war from the battles the city won, and these slaves were the ones that sustain the economy by doing the labor work.  Most of the Greek life were enjoyed by art, philosophy, food, and other entertainment.

Roman Crucifixion was about the most painful thing I've ever heard of. The body's of the victim would be nailed to a cross which meant that their whole body was being suported by their arms. These victims weren't just punished for a few hours, but were punished for hours and maybe even a few days.
