"Ancient Greece was the area of the world now controlled by modern Greece, Turkey, and Macedonia."

Was it? Ancient Greece was pretty much what we know as Greece. There were other Greek colonies, but I am not aware of them being considered part of Greece itself. And it wasn't Alexander who pacified the Greeks as much as his father Phillip. And, I would say it wasn't the fighting amongst the city states that allowed this to happen, it was just that Phillip's military setup was superior to what the Greeks had been able to bear whether or not they were fighting amongst themselves. The power of the city states changed so that Sparta was no longer dominant, but Greece was hardly a pushover. Learn together 03:06, 18 July 2007 (EDT)
