    Who was Ioannis Metaxas?

    Metaxas is one of my favorite Greek historical figures to study. One thing that really fascinates me is how polarizing he was. Some people loved him, some labeled him a dictator. One thing we can't deny is his influence and legacy, though, such as the role he played with "Ohi Day".

    Greco-Buddhism

    Thank you for sharing this. It is fascinating how the Ancient Greeks influenced all kinds of cultures. I had no idea there was such a thing as Greco-Buddhism and I am surprised I haven't bumped into it before. Hash, I agree. The quote by the Dalai Lama is incredibly fascinating!

    Famous ancient Greek women who changed history

    In history, you don't often hear about the role of women. This is an interesting roundup of names, and they are worth researching more. There's a nice mix of women here, too - poets, athletes, etc. I wish we knew of more.

    A conversation about modern Greek history!

    That's sad to me, that they're dying out. People maybe are moving away from the islands to find work, taking their culture with them?

    That's true! Prior to that Greece was grouped regionally.

    That's an excellent point - the period of time from the Greek War for Independence onward is especially intriguing. Even more interesting is the role ancient history plays in modern Greece!

    What role did Mani play in Greek independence?

    I would be interested to hear how the people of Mani see it... I agree, the story is beautiful!

    What role did Mani play in Greek independence?

    I think Mani declared war against the Ottoman Empire about a week or so before the rest of Greece. Mani is looked at as a catalyst for the war, their boldness in declaring war as a region inspired the rest of Greece to follow suit. Fascinating part of Greek history!

    What is the relationship between Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt?

    I don't know much, but I do know that there is evidence on Crete from the Minoan excavations that the Minoans had trade contact with Ancient Egypt. Some goods of Egyptian origin have been found at dig sites.
