What was the significance for a person in ancient societies belonging to a certain class. Give examples.

A person, in accordance with belonging to the class, occupied a strictly defined place in the social hierarchy. The higher a person’s position in the hierarchy, the more power and privileges he has. Belonging to a particular class was inherited, for example, if a slave gave birth to a child, he also became a slave.
