It is evident that in most of the urban and more cosmopolitan city-states are particular. Furthermore, the minority constituted the community proper. The majority included the non-citizens most often referred to as foreigners. Usually the majority of these residents were referred to as "metics"ÃÂ in the neighboring cities such as Athens.
The ones, who were slaves, outnumbered many and the women that resided here were more known in a fundamental sense. These people despite their rights, suffered tremendously. There suffering came in the form of disabilities as compared with the citizens. Similarly these people compared to the citizens, were subjected to the authority of their position and where they resided. In that respect, their position was no different from the citizens, and in this sense, the power of all Greek Polis was total.
This was identified through the source of all rights and its authority, which has reached every sphere of human behavior without any exception.
There are things that a Greek state customarily did not do such as providing higher education or control interest rates, but even then, its right to interfere was not the main subject or question, but it chose not to. Moreover, because of this the polis was inescapable.
