Group 16

metoikos (metic)

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.
