Polis is a Greek word meaning "city-state", coming from the Archaic period of Greece, where it was used to describe cities such as Athens. A polis was a self-governing or autonomous state. Today we have the word 'politics', which is partially derived from polis (politika, another Greek word means "affairs of the city") as well as other common terms like 'metropolis' (a large colony/city), 'necropolis' (city of the dead) and 'acropolis' (an elevated building/temple, such as the one in Athens).
