Craftsmen in Ancient Greece
Most shops in ancient Greece were small and family run. Some had a few slaves along with the family members working. Some shops had ten to thirty workers. One armory in Athens employed 120 workers, but this was a rare exception. Craftsmen could specialize in their work depending on the size of the city where they worked. In a smaller community a woodworker may make beds, plows, and doorframes. In a larger city, craftsmen specialized in making only one product.
