The ancient Greeks were an interesting bunch of people. They ranged from the democratic and sea-faring Athenians to the militaristic Spartans and the great conquerors of Macedonia. They managed to colonize many parts of the Mediterranean, including what is now modern day Italy and Turkey. One interesting thing about the Greeks is that they never drank pure wine. It was considered barbaric to do so. They instead diluted their wine, two parts water to one part wine.
