Word of “Hellenes” does not only mean people settled in Mainlad Greece, “Hellas”. “Hellenes” name is also given to who emigrated to Anatolia from Greece in beginning of the 1st millenium B.C. It is a kind of name which was given people spoke the same language althought they had different dialects. Whence, Hellenes described people who they had different language and beliefs as “Barbaros”. In Hellas before Macedonian domination, there was not only a govermental domination in term of politic. Practise of Polis (city state) gave importance to Athens especially and Sparta become its swore rival. Howbeit, Sparta was dominant in term of education system and pederastic education practited in Athens till beginning of of the 7th century B.C. Polis practice was also practited in Western Anatolia. Position of male and female in this system will be examined with other matters. Differance between rural life and urban life in Greek society especially started to increase with the Classical Period. Requirements between Kome (village) and Polis (city) appeared not only in main structure or architecture but also in cultural plane. Changement of religion to second and human to the first place with the Hellenistic Period, and its requirements brought a newer cultural structure system such as theatres and libraries.
