After a few centuries the Greek would count from this year as we count from the birth of Christ." (Robert, History of the world, p # 178) Anderson. Perry. Passages from Antiquity to Feudalism. London, Verso, 1974 P# 26-28

Slavery was the part of Greek civilization. Aristotle was of the view that slaves are born slaves because nature did not give them the right of freedom.

Roberts points out that slavery was all pervasive and remained a common feature in the Christian world for so long.
