Recommended Posts

History: As the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, Athens was famed as a center for the arts, learning and philosophy. The Athenians were also powerful warriors, particularly at sea. At its peak, Athens dominated a large part of the Hellenic world for several decades.

Gameplay: The Athenians field a relatively balanced military and a powerful navy. Their economy is one of the strongest, with several bonuses and their defenses formidable. No branch of their land forces is top tier tough, with their cavalry being possibly the most lacking one. Their Unique Unit is a fast moving spearman able to handle any threat without being severely outclassed.
