Ancient Greece Stamp by Mintaka-TK Ancient Greece Stamp by Mintaka-TK
I hope the text is easy to read... I went a bit too fancy for this one. ^^;

Ancient Greece refers to the civilisation that was based in, well... What is now modern Greece. :XD: Ancient Greece's influence is mainly situated in politics/philosophy, art, education and science. In fact, Ancient Greece is basically the bedrock of all Western civilisation. The Romans were so infatuated with Greek culture that they basically adopted it (such as for example, creating their own equivalents to Greek gods and goddesses) and ended up marginalising ancient Italian traditions. Democracy exists because of the city-state of Athens, and everyone knows about ancient Greek monuments like the Parthenon (as seen in the stamp background), classical statues and stories from Greek mythology. Many Greek monuments are still open to tourists in modern Greece today.

I'm personally a huge fan of Ancient Greek mythology.

TBH the only god in that pantheon I respect is Hades.

Everyone else is either a homicidal rapist or a feminist.

...I can respect that. I mean, mythology has many interpretations, so...

It's also kind of insulting honestly. Or at least it is to me. ★—_—💧
