In game:

  • Cultural Traits spread Greek Culture quicker and give units Melee Defence bonuses when defending their own or allies lands.
  • Tend to start small, but with easy access to the Mediterranean allowing for expansion by land or sea. Establishing a strong homeland can be challenging given the presence of multiple major factions in the vicinity and existing wars and treaties.
  • Rosters tend to be built around spear units (Hoplites/Pikes,) with Skirmisher and Cavalry support, but little in the way of sword armed melee units.
  • Pre-established treaties can lead to early conflicts and shape the early game. Breaking them can be advantageous but also risky.

In history:

  • The City states of Greece (and some of their colonies.)
  • Famed as centres of culture, learning, politics and military prowess, but who now find themselves challenged by younger powers such as Macedon and Rome.
  • The Greek style of warfare influenced many cultures across Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Western Asia.
