The Roman Republic differed from democratic Athens in that the main governing body in it was the Senate, which was divided into two parts: plebeians (representatives of the people) and patricians (representatives of ancient Roman families). Athens, on the other hand, was a democratic state, that is, a popular assembly ruled here. All important issues were resolved by universal suffrage. In Rome, the organ of the people’s assembly decided only individual everyday issues of the community, but did not touch on politics at all.
