At the end of the 6th century BC, Darius the Great ruled over an immense realm, from western China to eastern Europe.
But the conquest of Asia Minor (546 BC) left the Ionian Greeks under Persian rule, while the other Greeks were free, a state of affairs that was going to cause trouble sooner or later.
In 499 BC, instigated by Aristagoras in Miletus, the Ionian Revolt broke out; Ionian cities threw out the "tyrants" that the Persians had set over them, formed a league, and applied for help from the other Greeks.

 Roman law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Another important statute from the Republican era is the lex Aquilia of 286 BC, which may be regarded as the root of modern tort law.
This was achieved in a gradual process of applying the scientific methods of Greek philosophy to the subject of law—a subject which the Greeks themselves never treated as a science.
Traditionally, the origins of Roman legal science are being connected to the story of Gnaeus Flavius: Flavius is said to have published around the year 300 BC the formularies containing the words which had to be spoken in court in order to begin a legal action.

Parallel developments were meanwhile occurring in Egypt, which by the 32nd century BC had been unified to form the Old Kingdom of Egypt, and amongst the peoples of the Indus Valley in north-western India.
However, the empire began to collapse toward the end of the 7th century BC, and was obliterated by an alliance between a resurgent New Kingdom of Babylonia and the Iranian Medes.
In the 550s BC the Persians revolted against the Medes and gained control of their empire, and over the next few decades annexed to it the realms of Lydia in Anatolia, Babylonia, and Egypt, as well as consolidating their control over the Iranian plateau nearly as far as India.

In the early sixth century BC an area of flat land to the north-west of the Akropolis was set aside as a public space.
By the early fifth century BC it is clear that due to the growing population and citizen body and to the increasingly more sophisticated organisation of the city, public spaces and buildings are gaining an increasing specificity of function.
During the decade 470-460 BC, the Tholos was constructed as the new headquarters for the Prytaneis, or executive committee of the Athenian Boule (Council).

 DDL -- SOTR Chapter 2
From precedent to precedent, Roman citizen lawmaking grew from being applicable only to the plebs themselves in its 449 BC beginnings, to applying to the whole nation after approval by the Senate, to being the supreme law-giving of the nation in 287 BC.
In comparison with the class-struggles of the Greek city-states and of the Communes of medieval Italy, or with the internecine wars of later Roman history, the duel between patricians and plebeians was almost a model of patriotic solidarity and forbearance.
Caesar's bloody tyrannicide by those Senators on 15 March 44 BC, and the vengeful mass murders of republicans by the armies of Caesar's heir and generals created the beginning of the Republic's end.

 Articles - Direct democracy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Direct democracy was first experimented with in the ancient Athenian democracy of ancient Greece (beginning circa 508 BC (Finley, 1973)), which was governed for two centuries by a general assembly of all male citizens, by randomly selected officials, and one elected representative charged to command the army of the city (strategos).
Also relevant is the history of Roman democracy beginning circa 449 BC (Cary, 1967).
The ancient Roman Republic's "citizen lawmaking"—citizen formulation and passage of law, as well as citizen veto of legislature-made law—began about 449 BC and lasted the approximately four hundred years to the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BC.

The Peace of Callias was established around 449 BC between the Delian League (led by Athens) and Persia, ending the Persian Wars.
Persia had continually lost territory to the Greeks after the end of Xerxes I's invasion in 479 BC, and by 450 they were ready to make peace.
There was no direct fighting between the Greeks and the Persians after 450, but Persia continued to meddle in Greek affairs over the next twenty years, and was to become instrumental in securing a Spartan victory in the Peloponnesian War.

Subsequently, the Oath of Plataia (479 BC) determined that the destroyed temples should be left in their ruinous state as a monument to the Persian sacrilege: only the opisthodomos of the Old Temple of Athena Polias was repaired in order to house the ancient wooden cult statue of Athena.
