Greek culture This is the largest city of Greece: Athens. The Greeks were very unique people, exspecially the Athenians. Everybody was free as long as they followed the Greek laws. This was rare for ancient times. The Athenians believed in the abiliaty to strive for excellence, no matter what the challange. This is how they achieved such phenomenal (phenomenal means unbelievably great) accomplishments. The balance of mind and body is what they also believed in. Even though most strived to become athletes and soldiars, others ventured into drama, the arts, pottery, and philosophy. This was all important to the Anthenians and the rest of the Greeks but the two most important concepts were found inscribed in the Delphi. This read "Know thyself" and "Nothing in excess". This pholisphy is what greatly impacted the Greek civilization.
