athens vs sparta

It has been a long time since we have spoken. That is unfortunate. The conflict our polis’ have had may be the reason for this. How are the children, and how is life? I am mystified of your reasons for being so proud of being a simple spartan. Being a citizen of athens carries great respect and priviliges.

Hopefully the persians don’t invade soon, Athens is beginning to prosper, and there isn’t enough money to be made fending off invaders. How exactly do you manage to have so many servants around. I can only afford three for my entire family.I do not like the way your gove
