    For the ancient Greeks, virtue (arete) meant excellence. I'm not going to do your homework for you, but the introduction to this article should explain it:

    Haha I'm pretty sure we're in the same class. Do you happen to go to Fordham University and have Professor Nartey? I keep searching for my questions that are on the study guide and they are identical to yours.
