Athens is facing a big decision: what to do with the people of Mytilene, a city on the island of Lesbos where a revolt against Athenian rule has just been put down.

Craziest Things Ancient Greeks Did
 
11:33
Check out the craziest things ancient greeks did! This top 10 list of weird and bizarre facts about the history of ancient greece has some really crazy things you probably didn't know! Subscribe to World5List: http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Check out our "13 Amazing Pets Who Saved Their Owners" video at: https://youtu.be/bMwLm16_Q-0 Check out our "7 Celebrities Who Gave Their Kids Up For Adoption" video at: https://youtu.be/vVrlJFZ8sME 15. Phallic Parades We have many parades, some of which are a little racy, but once a year in Athens, they took it to a whole new level. Men and women would march down the streets holding gigantic penises above their heads as a tribute to their god of wine. It was called the Dionysian celebration. 14. Crocodile Dung as Skin Cream For many of us, crocodiles aren’t a part of our daily lives and I can’t even imagine if they were. However, living next to the nile, crocodiles were a common occurrence. This led to some interesting things in medicine. 13. Female Penis Lesbians The ancient Greeks didn’t really listen to what women had to say which means there were some pretty weird ideas. Though there’s even an educational divide today, ancient Greeks didn’t understand lesbians and probably didn’t want to either. 12. Birth Control Sometimes men are held accountable for birth control, but that was not the case in ancient Greece. Soranus, a Greek physician taught that birth control was completely the woman’s responsibility. He felt that if a woman became pregnant that it was her own fault. After all, it was completely unreasonable for men to have anything to do with it. 11. Filthy Cures for Women Though today women’s rights have come a long way, but in ancient Greece, they were thought to be susceptible to impurities. That means they believed that disgusting things affected women in some ways that didn’t affect men. 10. Athlete Sweat People go crazy for anything from their favorite athlete or celebrity. On Ebay you can find anything from their tissue to their jersey. But in ancient Greek days, it wasn’t their jersey everyone wanted, it was their sweat because athletes didn’t wear uniforms or clothes at all. That’s right, whether they were wrestling or running, they did it naked. 9. Trading Roosters Even though nowadays it would be considered statutory rape, Greek men often took young boys as lovers. The older man would take the initiative to present himself before a prepubescent boy to offer a live rooster. 8. Stone Wiping Toilet paper wasn’t a commodity until the 16th century in Europe. But there had to be some way to clean up. The Greeks, like the Romans, would clean themselves with a sponge on a stick. Now that doesn’t sound too bad, but most Greeks weren’t so lucky. 7. Earwax Tasting When you went to the doctor in ancient Greece it was not uncommon for him to taste your bodily fluids. That’s how he would come to a diagnosis. He might start by tasting your earwax then if you were puking, he would take a taste of that too. 6. Cheater Punishment Divorce is at an all time high. Many of these relationships end because one of the partners cheated on the other. Apparently we need stricter punishment for cheaters. The Greeks had it down. 5. Apple Chucking Today people profess their love with flowers or jewelry, but in ancient Greece, they were direct. If you loved someone, you would chuck an apple at them. Apples were not just used as a proposal or a confession, they were an overall symbol of love, marriage, and fertility. 4. Naked Gyms Much like athletic events, gyms in ancient Greece also had a naked only policy. Afterall, gymnasium roughly translates to “school for naked exercise”. That meant that they were also men-only 3. Unibrows Women in fashion today are obsessed with their eyebrows. They wax them, pluck them and even fill them in. Well it was actually no different in ancient greece except instead of trying to get rid of extra hair, they cultivated their eyebrows. 2. Zombie Prevention Zombie prevention that is on the mind of a lot of people nowadays, but even the ancient Greeks worried about it. They were so concerned that they prepped for the zombie apocalypse as soon as someone passed. 1. Elephant Wars Our wars consist of drones, tanks, guns and ships, however, can you imagine an elephant coming at you? Alexander the Great created a unit of war elephants to protect his palace. Yes, that’s right, elephants!

Sex, Drugs & Refugees. Syrian teenagers in Athens resort to prostitution to survive (RT Documentary)
 
26:06
As night falls in Athens, the city’s squares turn seedy, and middle-aged European men can be seen chatting with teenage Syrian boys – a seemingly odd pairing of friends. Many of these youngsters are refugees who have resorted to selling themselves for as little as €10 just to eat. Some also choose drug pedaling and petty theft to survive. With no official documents or help from Greece’s immigration authorities, they are stranded in this horrific life. To escape, some consider abandoning their dream of living in Europe, and others even contemplate suicide.

Sexual Exploitation of Young Refugees in Greece
 
09:26
In 2015, Greece found itself on the frontline of the biggest refugee crisis since World War II and caught unprepared to receive record numbers of people. The EU shut its border to Greece in 2016 to prevent refugees from moving further up the continent, leaving 50,000 people trapped there. Among them are up to 3,000 unaccompanied children aged 12 to 17 who have traveled alone from countries like Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Pakistan. With insufficient accommodation, almost half of the young unaccompanied refugees in Greece have fallen outside of the system, many ending up on the streets where they are exposed to all sorts of dangers, including sexual exploitation and abuse. We meet two boys, aged 15 and 16 who were coerced into prostitution in exchange for food and a few euros. We also speak the Mayor of Athens, Giorgos Kaminis, who is outspoken about the horrors facing young refugees in his city, and investigate whether his attempts to put pressure on the police have been effective.

Greek traditional Pontian dance ~ O Pirixios Xoros ~ Olympics 2004 ~ Athens
 
01:55
A unique aspect of Pontian dance is the tremoulo (Greek: Τρέμουλο), which is a fast shaking of the upper torso by a turning of the back on its axis. Pontian dances are similar to Greek dances in being danced in a line and forming a circle. Many Pontian dances are almost identical in steps to Greek dances. Pontian dances also resemble Persian and Middle Eastern dances in that they are not led, with no single leader in the dance formation. This is different from Greek dances but is a widespread aspect of Persian and Middle Eastern dances.

CRAZY Stuff The Ancient Greeks Did!
 
11:36
Mind-blowing crazy things the Ancient Greeks did! The most shocking facts about the mythology, medical practices, technology, beauty treatments and bathroom habits of Ancient Greek Civilization! From what they used for toilet paper to their unusual workout clothes, we look at strange and bizarre facts about the Ancient Greeks #13. “Apple of My Eye”- There have been some really strange ways that people have expressed their love for each other, but the Greeks nailed it with the weird tradition of throwing an apple at the person you wanted to marry. If the person you wanted to marry caught the apple, this would mean they accepted your proposal. The sources don’t say how hard they threw the apple, but it is fun to picture an ancient greek chucking the apple as hard as they can, giving the phrase ‘think fast’ new meaning. This tradition stems from the belief that apples were sacred to the goddess Aphrodite as she was awarded a golden one when Paris of Troy chose her as the most beautiful of all goddesses--which he only did because she promised him Helen of Troy, inevitably starting the Trojan War. Because Aphrodite was the goddess of love, apples became a large part of Greek romantic tradition. Aside from proposals, it was common for newlyweds to eat apples on their wedding night and people gave apples to each other as an ancient type of valentine. #12. “Political Exile”-In a practice which we wish was still in use today, if the ancient Athenians thought anyone, especially politicians, were doing a terrible job or were considered politically or socially dangerous to the city, the citizens were allowed to take a vote on whether or not the person should be exiled. This practice was known as ostrakismos [aw-strah-kiz-mos] which is the origin of the English word ostracise. If the person received 6,000 votes they would be banished from Athens for ten years, and if they attempted to return they would be executed. However, on some occasions after a few years they could be voted back, which happened a few times when the city needed the person. #10. “Tax Shaming”- In order for a democracy to function properly you would think that strict rules on taxation would have to be enforced so that the rich wouldn’t take advantage, but in ancient Greece this was far from the case. The Greeks practiced self-policing in many ways and the idea of paying your own fair share for the greater good was no different. Yes, there were rich and there were poor, but the Greeks had an ingrained understanding that in order for society as a whole to improve everyone had to make sacrifices. For those blessed by the gods with wealth it was only natural to give back. For the most part, in modern society this is something that must be forced on people via law, otherwise, there would never be funding for public works or necessary governmental institutions. To get the rich to pony up--all the Greeks had to do was to accuse someone of being frugal in their donations. This was a rare occurrence, because in ancient Greece, the way to really brag about one’s wealth was to give the biggest donation. It was also embedded in their culture that most riches were accrued via luck, so there was no inherent shame in being financially less fortunate.

CityExplorer Athens | Episode 7
 
04:08
CityExplorer is a video project in which Jeremy Suarez (26) from Belguim and Timmy v. Rixtel (27) from Holland are exploring 7 cities on their Rollerblade Maxxum's, while meeting up with friends and seeing what the cities have to offer. There last and final CityExplorer will be in Athens, Greece. Athens is a city with the most glorious history in the world. It is a city worshipped by gods and people, a magical city. The enchanting capital of Greece has long been considered a birthplace for civilization. It is the city where democracy was born and most of the wise men of ancient times have lived, such as Socrates and Plato. Athens is located just a few kilometers from the port of Piraeus, the central commercial port of the capital, and the shores of southern Attica making it easily accessible by the sea.The city is surrounded by mountains and the sun is shining over Athens all year round. The climate here is one of the best in Europe. With its mild winters and very hot summers it is a wonderful place to skate and an ideal location for the CityExplorer crew to pay a visit. While in Athens, in addition to the “must do” stops such as The Acropolis and Parthenon, the crew visited an old abandoned airport, which proved to be the perfect place to skate. Opened in 1938 and closed in 2001, Ellinikon International Airport was replaced by Athens International Airport that was built for the 2004 Summer Olympics Games. During the Olympics, however, Elinikon was given a second life as parts of the airport were used for canoe/kayak slalom, field hockey, baseball, and softball events. One of the hangars even got refitted to become the main fencing venue and one of the larger indoor basketball arenas. Given the current economic crisis in Greece the airport most likely will remain abandon with no hope of economic redevelopment in the future. Maybe opening it up to skaters could bring in a little extra money?! Check out what is left of the airport and all that Athens has to offer in the last CityExplorer video. We hoped you enjoyed the CityExplorer episodes as much as much as we had fun living them!

Greek is one of the world’s oldest languages, dating back to the 3rd millennium B.C. It is also the world’s oldest recoded living languages, with written inscriptions on clay tablets dating back to between 1450 and 1350 B.C.! Modern-day Greeks obviously don’t speak ancient Greek anymore, and travelers would be surprised to know that Greek words are present throughout our everyday vocabulary such as medical terms and numbers. In this Greek language introduction, George and David go over some basic words in Greek so that you can familiarize yourself with what it sounds like. Common words and phrases include Hello or “Yassas” and the days of the week. We hope this Greek language introduction gives you a “taste” of the Greek culture, and it is our hope you’ll one day get to explore Meteora, the beautiful heart of Greece. ☆ CONTACT ☆ ► Business: [email protected] _____ BLOG ►http://davidsbeenhere.com/ _____ BOOK YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE: ►http://app.trilltravel.co/u/davidsbeenhere _____ FOLLOW ME: + INSTAGRAM ►https://instagram.com/davidsbeenhere + FACEBOOK ►https://www.facebook.com/davidsbeenhere1 + TWITTER ► https://twitter.com/davidsbeenhere _____ SEND ME STUFF: 5858 SW 81 ST Miami, FL 33143 USA _____ P.S.

Most CRAZY Things Ancient Greeks Did!

Milo of Croton The Ancient Greeks invented progressive strength training. Milo of Croton won six Olympiads in the wrestling events. He also won multiple times at the Pythian Games, Isthmian Games, and Nemean Games. Milo loved to show off his strength and dexterity. According to sources, his favorite trick was to hold a pomegranate and have people try to take it from him. No one was strong enough to take the pomegranate from him and he also managed to not damage the fruit. How did he gain such prodigious strength and skill? According to popular legend, Milo noticed a newborn calf near his home. He decided to lift the animal and carry it on his shoulders. He returned the next day and did it again. He did it every day until the calf grew to a four-year-old bull. Thus was progressive strength training born. Here’s another wild athlete story. Theagenes of Thasos was a formidable fighter who won over 1,300 bouts over his two decade career. He even won a crown for long-distance running in the city of Argos. As a boxer, he was never defeated. According to legend, years after his, a vandal tried to deface a statue honoring Theagenes. The bronze statue broke in half and crushed the would-be criminal. 9. Birth Control by Sneezing The Ancient Greeks had various forms of birth control. Some forms involved certain herbs and plants, which worked very well. However, one physician, Soranus, advised women to do something a little odd. After intercourse, women were told to squat and sneeze to avoid becoming pregnant. He also suggested jumping up and down to dislodge the sperm. If that’s not crazy enough for you, the website Snopes.com was still debunking the “jump up and down” method of birth control as recently as 2007. 8. Brazen Bull In the 6th century BC, a brass worker named Perilaus of Athens created a large, hollow bull made of brass and gave it to a ruler named Phalaris. A door on the side of the bull allowed a man to climb into the sculpture. Once the door was closed, a fire could be lit from underneath and slowly roast the person. But it doesn’t end there. In the head of the bull was a series of stops and pipes that transformed the screams of the person into “the tenderest, most pathetic, most melodious of bellowings”. Phalaris was far from impressed. So disgusted by the piece, he asked Perilaus to climb into the bull and demonstrate the capabilities of the pipes. Once inside, Phalaris shut the door and ordered a fire lit beneath the bull. He reportedly said, “Receive the due reward of your wondrous art; let the music-maker be the first to play.” Before Perilaus, they removed him from the bull and threw him off a cliff. Despite Phalaris’s disgust, the brazen bull became the most common form of in Ancient Greece. Here’s an extra fact. Phalaris was a tyrant ruling in Acragas in Sicily from 570 BC to 554. He’s known for several building projects but he did have a cruel streak that made him the proverbial “evil tyrant”. According to legend, after he was overthrown by a general, the new ruler ordered Phalaris to roast inside the brazen bull. 7. Victorious Corpse Did you know? Cheating was a huge problem in Ancient Greek sport, just like today. Most of the time, it was the usual bribery or foul moves during games. Here is a picture of a scene on a kylix depicting two pankratists fighting. One of them is trying to gouge out the eye of his opponent while simultaneously biting. The umpire is preparing to strike the fighter for the foul. Some fighters would find an easier way and try to curse or hex their opponents using “curse tablets” to make them lose. An event held during the Olympic Games was the pankration, which was a mixed martial arts style that blended boxing and wrestling. Most famous of the pankratists was Arrhachion. During the 54th Olympiad in 564 BC, Arrhachion entered the pankration to defend his championship. However, his opponent got the better of him and put Arrachion into a chokehold. It is said Arrhachion’s trainer shouted, “What a fine funeral if you do not submit at Olympia”. Arrhachion responded by twisting and kicking his opponent’s foot and dislocating it. The pain forced his opponent to surrender. Unfortunately, the move broke Arrhachion’s neck. Despite that, the judges named Arrhachion the victor. he successfully defended his title. His fame spread as people held him up as the athletic ideal. Geographer Pausanias mentioned a statue immortalizing Arrhachion during his description of Phigalia

What is Direct Democracy? | ANCIENT ATHENS
 
09:57
What is the difference between representative government and the government in ancient Athens? In a representative government, there is no institutional role for the assembled people. However: Athenian city-states were known for their ‘direct democracy’. It is commonly thought Direct Democracy means that all important political powers were exercised by the assembled peoples… but were they? Which tasks were performed by whom? Tasks not performed by the Assembly were entrusted to citizens selected by a drawing of lots. In the past 200 years, a representative democracy has been associated with election... but never with lot. Lot has advantages, it is the form of selection harboring the most equality. But there are obvious disadvantages… Unqualified people can get into a position of power There is a disclaimer to this video: I delve into the institutional system of Ancient Athens. Let it be known that this “direct democracy” only allowed ‘free men’ to vote. Women, slaves and foreigners were NOT allowed to vote. Regardless, Ancient Athens is considered the first Direct Democracy, so what exactly does this mean?

Battle of Thermopylae - Spartans vs Persians
 
14:52
Western Democracy traces its roots to ancient Greece, a land of squabbling city-states. Amongst these warring city-states arose Athens, and a group of men who had a funny idea: citizens should get a say in who exactly got to rule them. Though initially imperfect in its implementation, that idea has since evolved to the free Democratic nations most of us live in today- but it could all have been lost to a single moment in history. Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show- today we're taking a look at another of the Greatest Battles in History: the battle of Thermopylae In 499 BC Greek cities which had been captured by the Persians in Asia Minor revolted against the brutal tyrants that had been placed to oversee them. In support of their conquered brethren, Athens and Eretria sent troops. Despite some major gains, several strategic mistakes cost the Greeks of Asia Minor their ultimate victory and the rebellion was put down. With Asia Minor back in the fold of the Persian Empire, the Persian king Darius I vowed to punish Athens and Eretria for their involvement, and saw the rest of the free cities of Greece as a threat to his empire. In 492 BC he launched an invasion of Thrace and Macedon, then sent heralds to the remaining Greek city-states demanding they accept Persian rule. Seeking to save themselves, many agreed- with the notable exceptions of Athens and Sparta. The Persian heralds in Athens were thrown into a pit, and their Spartan brethren followed suit by tossing theirs into a well. Enraged, Darius launched his invasion of mainland Greece and met with further success until an encounter against 10,000 Athenians in Marathon. Outnumbering the Greeks by 2.5 to 1, Darius saw an easy win- only for the Athenians to achieve a dramatic victory and force Darius to retreat. Nursing a very wounded ego, Darius planned an imminent re-invasion, with plans to raze Athens to the ground- but internal politics delayed these plans and Darius died of old age. Seeking to avenge the pride of his dead father, Xerxes prepared for a decisive campaign to end Greek independence forever. Remembering well the lessons at Marathon, Xerxes took his time to build a sizable force. Though some historical accounts tell of a force up to 2.5 million strong- these are almost certainly gross exaggeration, and it's more likely that Xerxes marched with 200,000 to 250,000, though for the ancient world this would certainly have been an incredible and mind-boggling number. Xerxes plan was simple: march into Greece through the north, and outflank any Greek defenders by landing his navy behind them along the Greek coast.

The Spartans - Part 1 of 3 (Ancient Greece Documentary) | Timeline
 
48:08
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK The Spartans chronicles the rise and fall of one of the most extreme civilisations the world has ever witnessed. A civilization that was founded on discipline, sacrifice and frugality where the onus was on the collective and the goal was to create the perfect state, and the perfect warrior. Classical historian Bettany Hughes reveals the secrets and complexities of everyday Spartan life: homosexuality was compulsory, money was outlawed, equality was enforced, weak boys were put to death and women enjoyed a level of social and sexual freedom that was unheard of in the ancient world. It was a nation of fearsome fighters where a glorious death was treasured. This can be aptly demonstrated by the kamikaze last stand at Thermopylae, where King Leonidas and his warriors fought with swords, hands and teeth to fend off the Persian invaders and show the rest of the world what it meant to be Spartan. Sparta was ruthlessly militaristic and founded on a belief that good order and justice protected against chaos and lawlessness. Policed by secret spies the society was supported by a nation of slaves so all Spartan men had to do was fight. Boys were indoctrinated with the Spartan code of death and glory, separated from their mothers at seven and left to fend for themselves. It led Aristotle to comment that Sparta "turned its children into animals." The training continued throughout adolescence, the most able boys being let loose as death squads preying on the slave population to keep them quiet. It cannot lay claim to the philosophers or artists of Athens but Sparta contributed as much to western civilisation as Athens did. Indeed it was Sparta, not Athens that was the first city to offer citizenship to its inhabitants. To many, the ideals formed 2500 years ago in Sparta can be seen as a fore-runner of modern-day totalitarianism. By setting out to create a perfect society protected by perfect warriors, Sparta made an enemy of change. A collapsing birth-rate, too few warriors, rebellious slaves, and outdated attitudes to weaponry and warfare combined to sow the seeds of Sparta's destruction. Eventually the once great warrior state was reduced to a stop for Roman tourists who came to view the bizarre sado-masochistic rituals. Documentary first broadcast in 2003. Content licensed from DRG.

This can be aptly demonstrated by the kamikaze last stand at Thermopylae, where King Leonidas and his warriors fought with swords, hands and teeth to fend off the Persian invaders and show the rest of the world what it meant to be Spartan. Programme two explores the bitter rivalry between Sparta and Athens and their startlingly different views of women. They were two cities with totally opposed views of the 'good life'. For Athens, Sparta was a frightening place that turned its children into fighting machines. But worse still were Sparta's women: liberated, independent, opinionated, they took an active part in sport, raced horses and chariots, celebrated nudity and wielded power in the absence of their men. They were an affront to Athenian notions of femininity. When war between Sparta and Athens finally came, it raged for decades and split the Greek world. Until, on the island of Sphacteria, the reputation of Sparta's famed warriors for fearlessness was shockingly undermined.

Crazy Things Ancient Spartans Did
 
09:43
They Enslaved An Entire Population The Spartans are almost solely known for their magnificent militant strength. Perhaps one of their most amazing conquests was enslaving the entire populus of the Helots, a group of people who resided in the Messenia area of Greece. The Spartans used the Helots as agricultural servants, getting most of their food from their fields. They would take the produce by force, allowing the Helots just enough to survive on. Over time, the Spartans became afraid that the Helots would overthrow them so they began to wage wars almost annually to keep them weak and fearful. A sort of military police, called the Krypteia, also took shape. The Krypteia was comprised of young, decorated soldiers who would hunt and kill the strongest Helots regularly to prevent any sort of uprising or strengthening. This is often regarded as one of the darkest military movements in Spartan history due to the terrible acts of the Krypteia and overall abhorrent treatment of the Helots in general. Spartan Infants Were Inspected and Discarded Being a child in Sparta was rough. Literally from the moment a baby was born it was scrutinized and held to an incredibly high standard of perfection. Newborns with deformities or undesirable traits were often left on the mountainside to perish or be adopted by neighboring families. According to Herodotus, many babies were even thrown from the mountain’s cliffs. Once deemed suitable, children received little attention, often going completely ignored in an attempt to discourage crying. When a male child turned five, they began learning to fight. He was removed from his home to live in military barracks with other boys where he learned to fight and use weaponry. The boys were taught to read and write and encouraged to participate in sports and learn traditional Spartan war songs during their free time. At the age of ten they were given tests to place them as soldiers; by twelve, they began learning to survive in the wilderness and participated in military drills. Spartan males were trained from their birth to be warriors with no room for failure so it comes as no surprise that their tough treatment carries on into puberty. They were often made to feel like drones, starved and encouraged to steal food, only being punished if caught. Female Spartans were recruited to mock and ridicule the starving warriors to toughen their skin. Though horrific to his, this treatment was envied by many neighboring groups, resulting in Spartan nannies often being hired for children outside of the culture. Punishment for Cowardice Spartans viewed cowardice as one of the absolute worst traits a person could possess. Due to this, the punishments for being a coward were extremely severe. Cowardly Spartans became social pariahs, with most being too ashamed to even share a meal with them. They also were left out of sporting events and had to give right of way to any other person passing them on the street and turn over their seats at events to younger men. Women refused to marry cowards and if the punished refused to obey the expectations of his assigned social status, he was beaten and abused until he submitted or proved himself to be brave. Some even were forced to dress foolishly, in clothes of stained cloth with half shaven beards to promote embarrassment. Spartan cowards could redeem themselves in many ways, the most common being perishing in battle while exhibiting courage and defending others. Almost all cowards were forgiven posthumously.

7 Giant Human Skeletons Ever Found

It has been reported that the world-renowned and highly trusted Smithsonian Institution was allegedly accused in a lawsuit of covering up the existence of giant humans in our past. Some of their skulls may have had horns, others double rows of teeth! Some supposedly had six fingers and elongated heads and carried giant weapons. According to the report, a ruling by the US Supreme Court is what forced the world’s largest museum to release classified documents from its early 19th century archives, going far in proving the allegations. The evidence, along with testimony from Smithsonian whistle-blowers, was said to show that thousands of giant skeletons between 183 and 366 centimeters (6–12′) tall were dug up all over the United States—only to be destroyed under direct orders from high up in Smithsonian management. Indeed, a surprising number of reports of giant skeletons do exist in old newspapers. All the same, you might want to take these claims with a bag of salt.
