Regents Review on Greece & Rome

The ideals developed in the Athens of Pericles and in Republican Rome influenced the development of

a parliament in Britain
military juntas in Latin America
a communist government in China
a theocracy in Iran

An important factor that prevented the ancient Greek city-states from uniting to form a single nation was the

lack of a common language
size of desert regions
mountainous topography of the region
cold, hostile climate

In a comparison of the ancient cities of Athens and Sparta, Sparta placed more emphasis on                             

military service
family order
human rights

One effect of the rugged, mountainous geography on the civilization of ancient Greece was the development of

absolute monarchies
separate, independent city-states
extensive trade with the Persians
belief in one God

Olympic games, the poems of Homer, and Hellenistic culture are associated with which ancient civilization


Which statement about Greek civilization is an opinion rather than a fact

Boys in Sparta were trained to be soldiers
Athens had a better culture than that of Sparta
Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle were Greek Philosophers
Many adults in Athens did not have the right to vote

What was one cause of many small independent city-states in Ancient Greece?

Greece and Rome were often at War
Mountainous terrain of Greece resulted in widely scattered settlements
Military leaders found small Greek settlements easy to control
The Greek people had many different languages and religions

China under the Han dynasty and the Roman Empire were similar in that both grew wealthy because they

developed extensive trade networks
created classless societies
encouraged democratic ideals
established free-market economies

The Age of Pericles in Athens, the Gupta Empire in India, and the Tang Dynasty in China all experienced a golden age with

advancements in the principle of democratic governments
outstanding contributions in the arts and sciences
the end of foreign domination
the furthest expansion of their borders

A valid conclusion drawn from these facts is that Roman women

had the right to vote
enjoyed some legal rights
were equal to men
could hold political offices
