Group 17.

Just making a space for our group. Not really sure what word we are doing this week yet.

Group 16.
Just testing to see if this works really !
We are defining Métoikoi, or metics. If this is the correct place to post ?
Here's my draft, only a draft and our group are still working on it but thought someone posting might start other groups off too.

//Métoikoi, or metics were foreigner immigrants/ resident aliens that were legally required to register to live in a city.

Athens at one point was said to be populated by roughly 50% Metics, with Sparta actively discouraging immigrants and other Greek polis’s having varying numbers in-between.

Aristotle is the most famous Métoikoi of antiquity.//

As I said only a draft, aware it lacks a definition between a citizen / metic, which I feel it needs. Hard to keep it non waffly , as aware we were told to be concise.
Cheers felly

Group 5

Definition of Linear A;
Linear A was a writing system devised by the Minoans and its use peaked between 1625-1450. It is distinguished from linear B which was a later script. It was used on wax tablets for trading, and also on temples, palaces and places of religious worship. Linear A was written from left to right, and consisted of simple characters with over 70 syllabic characters and 200 logograms.

Group 13
Demos means people and could mean either citizens or the common people as a whole. The popular assembly would be representative of the demos. It's also a name for the subsection of a polis.
