Best Answer

Athens became a direct democracy where all Athenian citizens voted on laws and legislation and the Council carried out these decisions.

Sparta was a limited democracy where two kings were responsible for war and religious leadership, and a 28-member council of elders which took significant issues to an assembly of citizens who could vote yes or no on the council's proposals on those issues.
