I know for sure that: syssition (singular)= a mess club.Um wait you used the same word
its singular and plural form(from hsc online)
Syssitia was the communal meals of around 15 spartans, and it is acceptable to use either terms. e.g. spartan men each had to make a contribution to the syssitia monthly.I know for sure that: syssition (singular)= a mess club.
What I just found out:
The word 'syssitia' is a plural of syssition. So, "multiple syssitia (aka. Multiple mess clubs)
However, according to antiquity 3 textbooks and 2 other documents that received from my teacher, the word syssitia also refers to the communal meals that spartiates share within the syssition that they belong to.
That is why I'm confused lol.
