"It's a little harder to prove that myths about ancient history are false than it is to disprove myths about more modern eras, but the prevailing opinion is that the following ideas are wrong. Some, like what has been called the 1st Human Rights Document, remain controversial.

The following ideas about ancient history might more properly be called "urban legends" to signify that they are mostly modern ideas about ancient history.

In addition to the following list, there are plenty of myths the ancients wove into their history. To learn about these, start with Introduction to Greek Mythology…."

The US got its framework for its republic more from Rome than Athens. Never read that Athens was much an inspiration for the Founders at all. So the article tries to debunk a wrong urban myth.
