Officials with administrative tasks in ancient Egypt and Assyria depended on the king and followed his orders, whereas officials in Athens and Rome were appointed by the people and worked according to its statutes. In the democratic order of Athens we even find elements of administrative law. Thomas Groß compares these systems of government and their early administrative mechanisms beyond the traditional classification into monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy.
