The opinions of experts are some of the most trustworthy sources available. One source is from Professor Hansen, a professor of philology and classics at the University of Copenhagen, and is considered a leading expert in Athenian democracy. He writes that Demokratia was the rule by male citizens only. Furthermore evidence from Wealthy Hellas, a book written by Professor Josiah Ober, states that only twelve percent of the population was able to vote.
