Category - Ancient Greece

Which of the following was not a social class in classical Sparta?
  1. Helots
  2. Talents
  3. Ephebes
  4. Metics
  5. Hoplites
Answer: B - Talents were units of money, not members of a social class in ancient Greece. Helots were slaves. Only Spartans recognized their enslaved class as helots; none of the other poleis gave slaves a special distinction. The other aforementioned classes were common to all ancient Greek city-states. Ephebes were the voting citizens; metics were immigrants to Greece (Greek residents who were not born in Greece); hoplites were foot soldiers.
