Daily Life -- Classical Greece

There really was no such thing as a typical Greek about whom we could structure a Classical Greek daily life.  We know mostly about Athenians and copiers of Athenians because it was mostly Athenians and their copiers who produced the art, records,and literature (mostly plays) from which we draw our knowledge.  And most of what we have is concerned with the higher income groups who wrote and commissioned others to write and to make art.  (We know something about slaves because slaves were often depicted serving the rich, but very little art or written work shows non slave members of the lower classes; they weren't considered worthy subjects about whom to write or to paint/sculpt/etc.

What follows are some glimpses of some lives leaving out some things that were covered in earlier lessons:  drama, temple activities, philosophy, wars.
