I am half Greek. I studied Ancient Greek, I get excited when I walk ancient sites, I truly admire the way they had made stories that fit this beautiful scenery so well. It is impossible to deny that Ancient Greeks defined the modern world to an unprecedented degree.
However….yes there was bound to be a “but” coming up, wasn’t there?…it has been greatly overdone. Some modern Greeks lay on their laurels, others claim ridiculous things as having started by Greeks. And everyone conveniently overlooks the plain daft, funny or truly ridiculous aspects of their writings.
Well, here’s my measly attempt at putting some of them together. Feel free to send in others I have missed, corrections (I am no scholar on this topic) or anything else which we might all find interesting.
