Corinth

You are a Corinthian at heart! You lived by the sea, so lots of travelers visited your city to buy and sell things. As a result, you are talented with managing your money. Corinthians were also good at making things and solving problems.

Argos

Argos is where your heart lies! The people who lived in this polis were called Argives. The people of Argos were very good musicians, wrote lovely poetry, and designed beautiful statues of athletes. As an Argive, you knew how to deal with adversity since you lived in a tough climate. It was very cold in the winter and hot and dry in the summer, and the soil was no good.  

Sparta

THIS IS SPARTA! In Sparta, all of the men and boys were soldiers. They had very hard lives, and spent a lot of time fighting, cheating, stealing, and being bullied. If you were a female, you were also expected to be strong and tough. Although, you have more freedom here than women in some of the other city-states. Some of the other Greeks thought that Spartans were like animals, but when the Greeks were at war with the Persians, everyone wanted YOU on their side!

Megara

You were meant to be a Megarian! As a Megarian you were very good at math and managing your money. You also made beautiful material. Megarians like you also valued their freedoms.

Athens

You were born to be an Athenian! As a well-mannered and cultured Athenian you spent a lot of time in school and university, and then trained to be soldiers. Unless, you were a female. In that case, you stayed at home and were trained to become an obedient wife and mother. You are very proud of your form of government (democracy) which allows all citizens to participate. Athenians considered themselves the cleverest people in ancient Greece, but everyone else thinks you are a show-off.
