Like the Phoenicians, the Greeks were a collection of city states during their great Hellenic period. And even though they often made war on each other, every four years, during the Olympic Games, they sublimated their violence into a fusion of mind and body worship dedicated to their chief god, Zeus. This great ideal of the Greeks has been more long lasting throughout history than any other.
