(slide) tehre are number of things…. that’s interesting… practices today through plato's law… mock warfares and using non lethal weapons. using ahteltecs togethere sare condiered equal valuing citizens. how they need to be controlled but elder statesmen.. 'law giver' also, game serve purpose beyond physical fitness. they are viewed as war trainig. trainig in cunning, strategy and technique and also training in sacrifice and training satate above yourself* because atheltes can have selfish motives but aheiving victory for own glory…. soliders are doing it for glory of state* for their state* there are nice indication of methods of training particularly in combat sports. use lighter weight boxing himantes to protect their hands but not do too much damange. or sometimes used dummie.s speaker advocate war games just like gymnasium trainig. famous trainig system was the SPARTAN system called the AGOGE** term agoge wasn’t used in classicla spartans. this term was used morein roman period after system was revied. romans really liked sparta.* and sparta itself became tourist desitnation.. watch admire ancient society and acting out their conditional patterns… all partan citiens except for the sons of kings unders age of 30 put through three level of training through supervision of the padiomonos.* youngest stage group was paides (7-13) paidiskoi (14-19) hebontes (20-29)** systmem to summarize…. system characteristzed by harsh training particularly boys out into wild… treatedharshly… this trainig intensified through middle age group presented to SYSSITIA-mass hall where older citizens gathered and supervized younger boys and socialization closely. it was the padiskoi where most famously was each member of each age group attached to older citizens in what was called the paderastic relationship* iniation ritual border between homosexual relationship with older and younger men and also friendship (blurry) this was the age group that took place. The hebontes reach age 20, officially joined syssitia and allowed to marry. not still senior citizens but recognized as men and start family. controversy of mass hall of syssitia is that they eat together… and sleep together (military styled?) but mpermitted to marry suggest that they had own households and mass halls were daytime meeting* headquarters of the day time. another famous point in the education system is when boys were put through trial 11 years old… steal meat altar of ARTEMIS ORTHIA* tyep of artemis worshiped in center of sparta. test first of all was to sneak in and steal meat. if they were spoted, they wwere flogged but ppl who were guarding it. beating started and enduring the flogging was the 2nd test. this was the harsh aura… little boys forced and being socialized to willingly put themselves in to this test. cunning and endurance to get through trial you were able to progress to the military training. obsession with pain* but willingness to endure pain to prove your worth was common* Xen (slide) in sparta, everyone would be ashamed to have coward* being brace and skilledat warfare.. participate in musicla events in the city and your status as a citizen bound up in one package. other states had a EPHEBOI (ephebes) stage of life called EPHEBEIA. most famous example athenes 4th C. aristotle describes this in his Athenaion politeia. (slide) munichia (outside attica). 2 athelteic trainig picked and teach drill as heavy arm soliders and both use sling nad javelin. diciplinry one drachma… it takes only 2 years (less time thaem spartan) organized by own family members, mebers of tribe organie it and appoint teachesrs and supervisors out of their own memebrs. the ephebes had special outfit/uniform called CHLAMYS (cape or cloack)** basically a rectangular shaped blanket fastened over a FIBULA* a giant safety pin. and also wore PETASOS (borad ward pelt hat) worse by fighters. this outfit was a uniform of Hermes* depicted in in… outdoor working traveling clothing* many depictions men wearing depict nude… emphasis heroic qualities* famous lion hunt (slide)* depicts the hunter with the chalmys and petasos. also bye calvary men* because its short. often you see calvary men decpited with the sme outfit. athenian ephbes reorganized 4th C by LYCURGUS (390-325) BC. he rose to particular prominanece after battle of CHAERONEA 338 BC philip 2 won huge vicotry over greek state organized under ahteina leadership. there is a text of decreee issued an honorific decree for Lycurgus* (oath of loyality) for epheboi to swear an oath. (slide) ex. leocrates sowre but didn’t fulfil it. lycurgus praised for reorgnzied athens finaical instiuttion particularly war treasury. ephebea stands out in the financial organizeation. hostile to macedonia and suspicious to sparta. leocrates thought to be prospartan… lycurgus wanted phsycia lsecurity from outwarly attack and ephbeoi was his solution* list of ephebs of various tribes permits figure of numbersof ephebes. 334 first organized, ithere were 450-500 Ephebes. 320 600 ephebes and even went higer but after 305 the epehpboi was made not compulsory… meaning you didn’t have to do it and in 282, leanth of seice was reduced to 1 year from 2. ephbeoi noble youth as marker of their status. no longer carried se
