While Unoka was seen by everyone as low because not only did he not have any titles he couldn’t properly take care of his family.

We start to see the stark social divide of activities with young men born of free males. If raised in Athens, I would venture to say the young man went to school, whether this was done at home or a formal institution, then would seek out his place is the community by either acting, writing plays, pondering philosophy, or if they were skilled at the art of negotiating, he became active in politics, campaigning and voting.
