Ancient Greece

Ancient Greece was made up of many city-states (polis) including Thebes, Corinth, Delphi, Argos and Rhodes.

Citizens in Ancient Greece didn’t consider themselves to be Greek,¬†they considered themselves to come¬†from their city-state; therefore:

Corinthians came from Corinth
Rhodians came from Rhodes

The two most important city-states of Ancient Greece were Athens and Sparta.
