The Ancient Olympic Games were organised in Ancient Olympia Greece and, therefore, named after their location. It is not quite clear when they began, however, there are records dating 776 BC. They took place every four years for more than a millennium. This four-year cycle was referred to as “Olympiad”, and was used as a date system. Time was not counted in years but in Olympiads.

NOTED: The Ionic Order

NOTED: The Ionic Order | ancient civilization | Scoop.it

This loose confederation for a time banded together to form the Ionian League, which was an early and great center of Greek civilization. Its legacies are staggeringly outsized: the foundations of Greek philosophy, geometry and mathematics with the Ionian school of the eminent Thales and his followers Anaximander, Anaximenes, Heraclitus, Anaxagoras, Archelaus, and Diogenes of Apollonia; the mystery school founded by Pythagoras of Samos, the great geometer and philosopher; and generations of brilliant artists and architects who deeply influenced the development of Hellenic art. In fact, if Western civilization was born in ancient Greece, then Greek civilization can be said to have been born in Ionia.

Egypt's Alexandria-based rulers, including Cleopatra, were ethnically Greek, descended from Alexander the Great's general Ptolemy I Soter. They would have spoken Greek and observed Greek customs, separating themselves from the ethnically Egyptian majority. But unlike her forebears, Cleopatra actually bothered to learn the Egyptian language.
