So these civilizations were founded all around the same time. There are many similarities and differences in their political characteristics, social/cultural characteristics, and economic characteristics. First, Mesopotamia and Egypt are both similar and different to India politically.

A pyramid, according to the Ancient History Encyclopedia, is a structure or landmark, usually with a quadrilateral base, which ascends to a triangular point. While a lot of people associate pyramid exclusively with Egyptian culture, the pyramid shape was actually used first in the mud-brick structure in ancient Mesopotamia. Moreover, pyramids are also widely used in Central and South America, China, and India. Yet, from all of these pyramids, the most similar one to the Egyptian pyramid is the Mesoamerican pyramid, specifically the pyramid from Inca tribe. Even though Egyptian and Inca pyramids seem to be distinct, they, in fact, share some surprising similarities.
How did ancient peoples manage to create buildings which could last until today when they did not have access to any of modern equipment? Specifically, structures like Stonehenge and Angkor Wat were all constructed over thousand years ago where there was no existence of excavator, loader or trucks, but ancient people are very smart to be able to build such admiring structures for next generations afterward. Angkor Wat was located in Siem Reap, Cambodia while Stonehenge was in Wiltshire, England. Even though they were found in different places, Angkor Wat and Stonehenge share some similarities but also differences in term of history, architecture and purposes. In term of History, there are two similarities and one difference.

King Tut is not really known for his legacy as he became king at the game of 9 and died young at the age of 19. He is rather known for being the only king whose tomb and mummy were found intact with all the treasures buried with it, untouched by tomb robbers. In November 1922, English archaeologist Howard Carter found steps hidden in the debris in the Valley of the Kings. The steps led to an ancient sealed doorway bearing the name Tutankhamen. When Carter entered the tomb’s interior chambers, they found it virtually intact, with its treasures untouched after more than 3,000 years.
In the ancient architectural structures, the civilization incorporated their own respective religious beliefs, political views and the socioeconomic factor in the construction. Moreover, these civilizations may have similarities and differences. To begin with, the Ziggurat of Ur and the Great pyramids of Giza are completely from different civilization, however they have similarities in some way. The ziggurat of Ur was built by the Sumerians.They built it with solid mud brick and bitumen. A ziggurat has four sides that are oriented to the cardinal points of the compass.
In the other hand, the Mayan civilization developed in Yucatan Peninsula around 200 B.C., and mysterious disappeared around 900 A.D. However, these two cultures share many factors in common such as developing calendars and building pyramids. Even though civilizations developed in different time periods, they can still have many factors in common such as environment, language, and architecture.

As noted before, the Mayans thrived in the Yucatan peninsula, which is made up of jungles and lowlands.

Besides the obvious factor that they have a different genders Oedipus and Antigone are not as similar as the chorus says. Unlike her father Antigone is not blinded by what is right in front of her; an article says "She is always aware of the glory of her deed and dies for love in the largest sense of the word, but her concurrent awareness of her youth and her loss of earthly love humanize her.
