I agree that the Greek empire did have an effect on modern day society, but I believe that the Roman empire had a much bigger effect. There ability to create there own mass road systems and aqueducts are a start, but I wish to hear from you what the Greeks did better than the Romans.

I said Greek instead of Roman because the Romans took what the Greeks started and barely changed it. They even had the same gods, just with different names. Almost everything the Romans had the Greeks started or thought of first, such as aqueducts and road systems.

Now I will admit, some of that is true. They did, in fact, take the Gods the Greeks had. However, the Romans had an advance military that easily conquered most of the Mediterranean Sea area. Here are just a few of Roman invented technologies, the original reaper, lateen sails, sewers, cement concrete, and cameos. Link about that here (http://en.wikipedia.org...). Also, conquering a lot the land can have an impact on society, too. The Greeks did the best with diplomacy and the Romans did the best with Military and Civil tech.
