Women & The Family - Ancient Greek Society 08
 
09:36
Ancient Greek women had very different outcomes in life depending on where they were born, and the class they were born into. Some could be isolated, valued only for their ability to bear children. Some could be prostititutes ...and others could be empowered, tough, capable women who kept society together. The eighth in a "flipped classroom" series on Ancient Greek Society.

Craziest Things Ancient Greeks Did

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!

Girl's European Trip: Exploring Ancient Athens
 
02:10
▶ Check out my gear on Kit: https://kit.com/cheerstotravels Welcome to Athens, Greece! Open to read more… Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC (the “Golden Age of Pericles”) – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments - a rare historical palimpsest. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm. A large part of the town’s historic centre has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites (“archaeological park”), reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape.

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

Sex in Ancient Rome: Behind the Tales of Wild Eroticism, a Different Truth | Mary Beard
 
04:45
Cambridge professor and author Mary Beard explores the mythical sex stories of the Roman Empire, before she lays down the realities. Beard's latest book is "S.P.Q.R.: A History of Ancient Rome" (http://goo.gl/MMAUkn). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/mary-beard-on-sexual-practices-of-ancient-romans Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - Sex is one of the things that has always absolutely enticed us about the Roman Empire. And the Roman Empire is always represented as the place where people did frightful things and where in a sense there were no sexual rules. Anything went. Everybody had a good time. And there are indeed wonderful stories about the excesses of Roman emperors and their wives. One of everybody’s favorites is the story of the Roman Emperor Tiberius who used to go off to his villa in Capri where he had a great swimming pool. And he had specially trained little boys who swam underwater while the emperor was swimming and nibbled his genitals. And he called them his little minnows. And it wasn’t just the emperors. There was a very famous Roman Empress Messalina who’s the wife of a slightly doddery old emperor Claudius. And she was supposed to have challenged the prostitutes of Rome to a competition to see how many men they could sleep with in a single night. And of course Messalina beat all the prostitutes. Now some of this might be going on some of this but I suspect that just as those kind of exploits of Roman emperors are all fantasies, can we think of the most amazing things that people can get up to. So also they would have fantasies of Roman writers too when they kind of invented these stories about people in power. And, you know, I think there are very, very important differences between ancient sexual behavior and our own. But not quite so clearly in the level of absolute excess. And I think for a woman the biggest thing, the biggest difference you’d see is a complete double standard. That’s to say in an ordinary Roman household the woman was expected to be absolutely faithful to her husband, no sex with anyone else. The husband it was quite all right for him to sleep with the slaves, male and female, anybody he fancied. There was no such restraint on him. And of course that relates in a way back to basic anxieties and worries of a very patriarchal community such as Rome. Read Full Transcript Here: http://goo.gl/NVJdci.

Sex, Drugs & Refugees. Syrian teenagers in Athens resort to prostitution to survive (RT Documentary)

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.

They didn't have the right to vote but there was no such thing as antihomosexual law against them (as many fascists slash bigots may try to convince you). Etymology of a word is useless, unless we find the use of the word in ancient scripts. This leads to the meaning: lecher, lustful Kinaidoi were the adult men who, after the 'effect' of the pederasty, didn't not have any curiosity for vaginas. It was something acceptable and tolerant. As told before, homosexuality in various forms was something normal in ancient world. The Bisexual Behavior was the accepted one for an adult man. The only thing that ancients greeks prohibited was the male prostitution (that's what Timarhus did). They believed that if a man can sell his body so easily for money, he can also sell his country, so that man would lose his rights as Athenian citizen. Also there wasn't such thing as marriage between 2 men, who couldn't live under the same roof. Marriage was the union of a man and a woman with ultimate goal to create family. Other than that, no form of sexual activity was considered unnatural, or perversion, or abnormal. :) Spencer, Collins: Histoire de l'homosexualité, Agora Pocket, Paris 1995 Dover, Kenneth J.: Greek Homosexuality, Vintage Books, 1978 Thornton, Bruce S.: Eros: the Myth of Ancient Greek Sexuality, Westview Press, 1997 Calame, Claude: L'Éros dans la Grèce antique, Belin, Paris 2000 Cantarella, Eva: Bisexuality in the Ancient World, 2nd edition, Yale University Press, 2002 Ludwig, Paul Walter: Eros and Polis: Desire and Community in Greek Political Theory.

The Spartans - Part 2 of 3 (Ancient Greece Documentary) | Timeline
 
47:52
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. 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. 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.

Ελληνικοί υπότιτλοι ancient civilization ATHENS and Sparta were both Greek cities and their people spoke a common language. In every other respect they were different. Athens rose high from the plain. It was a city exposed to the fresh breezes from the sea, willing to look at the world with the eyes of a happy child. Sparta, on the other hand, was built at the bottom of a deep valley, and used the surrounding mountains as a barrier against foreign thought. Athens was a city of busy trade. Sparta was an armed camp where people were soldiers for the sake of being soldiers. The people of Athens loved to sit in the sun and discuss poetry or listen to the wise words of a philosopher. The Spartans, on the other hand, never wrote a single line that was considered literature, but they knew how to fight, they liked to fight, and they sacrificed all human emotions to their ideal of military preparedness.

Colors of Ancient Europe – Caryatid from the Erechtheion in Athens
 
01:25
A caryatid is a sculpted female figure serving as an architectural support taking the place of a column or a pillar supporting an entablature on her head. The Greek term karyatides literally means "maidens of Karyai", an ancient town of Peloponnese. Karyai had a famous temple dedicated to the goddess Artemis in her aspect of Artemis Karyatis: "As Karyatis she rejoiced in the dances of the nut-tree village of Karyai, those Karyatides, who in their ecstatic round-dance carried on their heads baskets of live reeds, as if they were dancing plants". Some of the earliest known examples were found in the treasuries of Delphi, dating to about the 6th century BC, but their use as supports in the form of women can be traced back even earlier, to ritual basins, ivory mirror handles from Phoenicia, and draped figures from archaic Greece. The best-known and most-copied examples are those of the six figures of the Caryatid Porch of the Erechtheion on the Acropolis at Athens. One of those original six figures, removed by Lord Elgin in the early 19th century, is now in the British Museum in London. The Acropolis Museum holds the other five figures Although of the same height and build, and similarly attired and coiffed, the six Caryatids are not the same: their faces, stance, draping, and hair are carved separately; the three on the left stand on their right foot, while the three on the right stand on their left foot. Their bulky, intricately arranged hairstyles serve the crucial purpose of providing static support to their necks, which would otherwise be the thinnest and structurally weakest part. The Romans also copied the Erechtheion caryatids, installing copies in the Forum of Augustus and the Pantheon in Rome, and at Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli. Another Roman example, found on the Via Appia, is the Townley Caryatid. Renaissance and after In Early Modern times, the practice of integrating caryatids into building facades was revived, and in interiors they began to be employed in fireplaces, which had not been a feature of buildings in Antiquity and offered no precedents. Early interior examples are the figures of Hercules and Iole carved on the jambs of a monumental fireplace in the Sala della Jole of the Doge's Palace, Venice, about 1450. In the following century Jacopo Sansovino, both sculptor and architect, carved a pair of female figures supporting the shelf of a marble chimneypiece at Villa Garzoni, near Padua. No architect mentioned the device until 1615, when Palladio's pupil Vincenzo Scamozzi included a chapter devoted to chimneypieces in his Idea della archittura universale. Those in the apartments of princes and important personages, he considered, might be grand enough for chimneypieces with caryatid supporters, such as one he illustrated and a similar one he installed in the Sala dell'Anticollegio, also in the Doge's Palace. In the 16th century, from the examples engraved for Sebastiano Serlio's treatise on architecture, caryatids became a fixture in the decorative vocabulary of Northern Mannerism expressed by the Fontainebleau School and the engravers of designs in Antwerp. In the early 17th century, interior examples appear in Jacobean interiors in England; in Scotland the overmantel in the great hall of Muchalls Castle remains an early example. Caryatids remained part of the German Baroque vocabulary (illustration, right) and were refashioned in more restrained and "Grecian" forms by neoclassical architects and designers, such as the four terracotta caryatids on the porch of St Pancras New Church, London (1822). Many caryatids lined up on the facade of the 1893 Palace of the Arts housing the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. In the arts of design, the draped figure supporting an acanthus-grown basket capital taking the form of a candlestick or a table-support is a familiar cliché of neoclassical decorative arts. The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota has caryatids as a motif on its eastern facade. In 1905 American sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens created a caryatid porch for the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York in which four of the eight figures (the other four figures holding only wreaths) represented a different art form, Architecture, Painting, Sculpture, and Music . Auguste Rodin's 1881 sculpture Fallen Caryatid Carrying her Stone (part of his monumental The Gates of Hell work) shows a fallen caryatid. Robert Heinlein described this piece in Stranger in a Strange Land: "Now here we have another emotional symbol... for almost three thousand years or longer, architects have designed buildings with columns shaped as female figures... After all those centuries it took Rodin to see that this was work too heavy for a girl... Here is this poor little caryatid who has tried — and failed, fallen under the load.... She didn't give up, Ben; she's still trying to lift that stone after it has crushed her..."
Ancient Pyrrhic Dance (Hellenic War Dance): Athens 1997 - ΠΥΡΡΙΧΙΟΣ Χορός

The Pyrrhichios dance ("Pyrrhic dance"; Ancient Greek: πυρρίχιος or πυρρίχη, but often misspelled as πυρρίχειος or πυρήχειος) was the best known war dance of the Greeks. It was probably of Doric origin and practiced at first solely as a training for war. Plato (leges, p. 815) describes it as imitating by quick movements the ways in which blows and darts are to be avoided and also the modes in which an enemy is to be attacked. It was dance to the sound of the aulos; it's time was quick and light, as is also shewn by the metric foot called pyrrhic. It was described by Xenophon in his work the Anabasis. In that work he writes that at a festival was held in Trapezus (Pontus) to celebrate the arrival of his troops in the city. The following is the part in which the pyrrhic dance is mentioned: "A Mysian who saw that they were amazed, retorted by persuading one of the Arcadians who had acquired a dancing girl to dress her in the finest costume he could, fit her with a light shield and bring her on to give a graceful performance of the “Pyrrhic” dance. Thereupon there was a roar of applause, and the Paphlagonians asked if the Greek women also fought side by side with their men. The Greeks answered that these were the very women who had routed the king from his camp" Also Homer refers to Pyrrihios and describes how Achilles danced it around the burning funeral of Patroclos. The dance was loved in all of Greece and especially the Spartans considered it a kind of light war training and so they taught the dance to their children while still young.
