I bid you welcome! You have reached the Agora of ancient-greek.net, a small (but growing) corner of the Web; and I hope you enjoy your stay! The Agora is the hub of the page, from where you can begin your journey into the various topics; click the Agora button at the top left to return here.

This website — as its name may have already made you realise — contains countless pages regarding the Ancient Greek language and country.
It is not, however, entirely focussed on the Classical Period of Greece (a period spanning roughly 200 years between the fifth and fourth centuries BC), but rather anything Greek-related spanning from the Classical Period up until the Byzantine.
The website’s main focus is the Ancient Greek language, however, and the majority of the information you find here will be about the language. For a more detailed overview, I would highly recommend you visit the About page.
