Abstract
In the ancient city-state classical period civil liberty meant the right of adult males - heads of families and households, to rule over all the categories of non-citizens, especially over their wives and children. The legal status of minors was effectively zero: the father could legally to kill his son, to sell him into slavery, to have his property, and so on. However, in the archaic and postclassic period the situation is quite different: in the tribal and imperial-monarchical structures children have so much more civil rights, as far as their fathers have less family power.
