Okay,here are my current arguments

1.) Government

Rome was a united republic or empire depending on the time period while Greece was just a bunch of warring city-states like Athens,Sparta,Thebes etc that would constantly fight eachother.

2.) Military

At it's peak,Rome had about 400,000 men in their army not counting the other branches of the Roman military.Each Greek city-state had about 10,000 men which means that at it's peak, Rome had 40 times more army men than a Greek city-state.And let's not forget that Rome actually conquered Greece.

3.) Size and population

Rome had an empire that ruled the Mediterranian and was on 3 continents.Greece on the other hand only covered most of modern Greece which if you look at a map is not that much.Rome at it's peak had around 56.8 million people while Greece had at the most around 3 million.
