What Would Your Job Be in Ancient Greek Society?

You got: Royal Scribe

Smart, articulate, trustworthy, and cultured, you would be a royal scribe! You are in the inner circle of some of the most powerful people in Greece, and you take pride in your job. You also get to attend some of the most coveted events. But watch your back — people would literally kill to have your job (and steal all your secrets)!

You got: Bathhouse Owner

You're fashionable, hospitable, and fun-loving, and you know how to throw a good party. You're suited to own a popular bathhouse, where everyone comes to cool off and have a little fun (and you get to hear all the latest gossip)! You know and love your patrons, and they frequent your establishment because it's well-maintained and always has the best-smelling bath products from across the land.

You're well-versed in math and science, making you a go-to person for anyone in need of a little medical TLC. You know which herb helps what, and people trust you with their lives (and there's always a line at your apothecary).

You got: Head of State

With your level head, shrewdness, wisdom, and political savvy, you would take your place as the highest order of the land — ruling all of Greece! Just watch your back, literally. You don't want to go the way of Caesar.

You got: Potter/Craftsman

With your eye for beauty, skilled hand, and impeccable taste, you're suited to be a sought-after craftsman!

You got: Bard

With your musical ability, cultural knowledge, and love of storytelling, you're perfectly suited to be a bard! Like Homer, you take pride in passing on the stories and traditions of your people and creating your own as well. Crowds gather to hear you sing or skillfully tell the classics along with your own twists on tales. You're usually the first to hear the latest drama and compose a witty ditty about it.
