Ascetic

If your aesthetics are ascetic...

...would you be a Spartan or a Roman?

A Spartan!

ascetic means:
Practicing self-denial.  To be austere or stark.
<ah-set-tik>

aesthetic means:
Of or concerning the appreciation of beauty or good taste.

<ah-stet-ik>

The Spartans did not care about fancy or beautiful things...
... so much so... the phrase "Spartan lifestyle" means to live with very little of life's pleasures.

Of course... the Roman's were lavish and decadent.
