In ancient Greece, a genos (Greek: γένος, "race, stock, kin", plural genē - γένη) was a social group claiming common descent, referred to by a single name (see also Sanskrit "Gana"). Most gene seem to have been composed of noble families—Herodotus uses the term to denote noble families—and much of early Greek politics seems to have involved struggles between gene. Gene are best attested at Athens, where writers from Herodotus to Aristotle dealt with them.
