Ancient Greek

Ancient Greek was an Indo-European language spoken primarily in Greece. It has a long and well-documented history—the longest of any Indo-European language—spanning 34 centuries. There is an Ancient phase, subdivided into a Mycenaean period (texts in syllabic script attested from the 14th-13th c. BC) and Archaic and Classical periods (beginning with the adoption of the alphabet, from the 8th-4th c. BC); a Hellenistic and Roman phase (4th c. BC – 4th c. AD); a Byzantine phase (5th-15th centuries).
