Witness talented legal minds litigating the fate of Pericles, known as the great hero of Athenian democracy.

 

Pericles changed the Athenian Constitution to revoke the citizenship of those without two Athenian parents, claiming this was necessary to protect Athens from foreign influence. Many viewed his actions as tyrannical because citizens lost their civil liberties, including the right to vote.

 

Now, it’s up to you, the audience, to decide: ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ฃ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ผ ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ ๐˜๐˜†๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜?
