Roman culture is a lot like the United States. From the government to the activities to the impact on the places and countries around them. Rome and the United States both used the three branches of government, which are the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. All the citizens in Rome had to abide by rights and laws made by the branches of government just like the citizens of the United States. Another things their government has in common is that they both use the veto, which was the right to reject a decision by the law-makers. Both of the governments also would have a higher chance of being in debt because both of their imports were greater than their exports. Rome and the United States also both had places for entertainment and played some of the same sports.
In around 428-65 BC, Greece and Rome were both creating new cultural ideals, ways of using government, and built allies to help benefit the country. Both Empires created similar cultures including cities,technology, complex institutions, record keeping and specialized works. Eventually when they began to expand into a vast empires, they had to come up with ways of organizing and obtaining enough resources for their people. This lead to complex trading tactics, forms of government, and social structure. Even though Rome and Greece were both critical to the creation of the United States, Rome was more influential due to the way it trades with other countries, glorified people of certain social positions, and structured its government.
In history, before America was established by the British, there were two places known as Ancient Greece and Rome. Rome was a city, whereas Greece was a country during the Dark-age era. The Romans were similar with the Greeks, however the Romans had some differences, making them the people of
The Roman Empire versus the Greek Empire Introduction The Greece and the Roman empires are considered to be amongst the most powerful empires in history as their impact is still felt some 2000 years after they were conquered. The Greece Empire is said to have lasted for approximately 350 years while the Roman Empire is said to have lasted for between 500 and 1500 years based on how one interprets the rule of the Romans (Ahbel-Rappe 530). Over time, there has been a debate on which of the two empires was strong than the other based on the impacts to the ancient world. From the debates, it has been noted that some individuals hold on to the fact that the Romans managed to develop a world that the Greeks only dreamed about while others have maintained that the Greeks had built a better world than the Romans (Roisman 410). Based on my knowledge of the two empires, I think the Romans were better than the Greeks thus making the Greeks to dream of building a world similar to that of Romans. As such, this paper will give points for and against my claim.
Both time periods have differences, but they also have similarities that tie the two together. Both Roman time periods had land extending from Spain to present day Turkey. Over time they both gained and lost territory during their time of rule, but the core land mass obtained from them was the same. The capital for both groups was Rome, Italy. This was the halfway point of the land. So, when the leaders were needed, they could travel in a short matter of time. Both time periods also spoke the same language which was Koine and Latin. Koine was the original language that most knew how to speak and slowly Latin was brought into both. They also shared the same resources, which is because both lived in the same location. They were known to export several types of metals and wheat (View Article: Imperial Rome vs. Roman Republic).
Greek and Roman culture, although similar, are very different and interesting. Since the Romans adopted culture from the Greeks, many traditions are the same. When the Romans conquered the Hellenistic cities, they became fascinated with the idea of a Greek style of doing things. All things Greek
In western ancient world, there were kings who tried to bring the world come together ideologically, culturally and politically. This caused lots of cultural exchange between people and help them understand and respect each other’s ways of life. On the other hand, politically, it created a lot of major wars. It took a large amount of resources and decades to end these wars. As a result of these wars, most kingdoms suffered from both economical and political problems. Therefore, it is fair to say that Greek/Hellenistic civilization could be characterized as being a period of intellectual and cultural achievement but political failure.
Greek mythology and Roman mythology both have an importance in both ancient history and the modern world. People often confuse the two and mistake them for each other. They may be similar on paper but they are very different. Greek mythology is more original, had a bigger influence on the
One similarity is that they are both superpowers. Ancient Rome was a superpower because no one could stop them from taking over their land. The U.S. is a superpower also because they have many trading parties with other countries. Another similarity would be that both the U.S. and Rome had big building projects. One building project that the Romans made was the Pantheon. One of the building projects the U.S. did was the making of the U.S.Capital Building. A last similarity is that both the U.S. and Ancient Rome has the same government type. The government type that they both have is a republic. The Romans had a straight up republic until Augustus Caesar came to power it turned into an oligarchy/ monarchy type of government. Today in the U.S. we have a constitutional
IN WHAT WAYS WERE THE ROMANS HEIRS TO GREEK AND HELLENISTIC CIVILIZATION? The Hellenistic civilization marked an important time in Greek culture. This was the period between 323 and 31 BC, at one point the Greek society changed from being withdrawn and localized to an aggressive multinational, unprotected, and eager culture that infused together southwest Asia and eastern Mediterranean. The Hellenistic world involved many different people but the Greeks’ thinking and way of life influenced most of the matters.1 Every aspect related to culture followed the beliefs of the Greeks and this led to the Greek language becoming established, as the official language of this area. The following arguments are centralized around

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World fascinate and baffle the modern world. The list is comprised of the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes, and lastly the Lighthouse of Alexandria (history). Ancient civilizations had developed and grown without being as connected as countries in today's society are. Thus, cultures and societies remained unique from the others. Ancient communities such as the Greek are both similar and different from other ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians in many ways; some similarities are their interests in geometry and mathematics, having an insular society, and religious beliefs and some differences are religious structures, art style, and finally government structures.
The Greeks and the Romans used the art of statuary similarly to represent their people in the form of a permanent piece of art. Their similarities in their pieces include the materials they used, such as bronze, as bronze, stone, metals and some marble. Unfortunately, they also have the similarity that most of their remaining sculptures of those of stone and marble, due to the consistent need of metals in the years to follow them. Another resemblance would be that they both used it to demonstrate what is vital to them; fitness to the Greeks and leadership to the Romans. Even though they had many common characteristics, they also had a variety of differences.
