The many hundreds of Greek city-states which stretched from Spainand Africa to Asia Minor around the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegeanand Black Seas during the period 600 BCE to… 500 CE.
Ancient Greece (Hellas as they called it) was distributed around the Mediterranean and Black Seas . It was not a country but hundreds of independent city-states which adopt…ed Greek (Hellenic as they called it) culture. These cities were scattered around the coastlines and islands from Spain, southern France, southern Italy, Sicily, north Africa, Asia Minor to southern Russia (those are the present country names - they were different then). (see map link) When Alexander the Great captured the Persian Empire and he and his successors promoted Hellenism in those areas too , but it was mostly a veneer, and faded quickly in the outlying areas. His empire was split up amongst his generals, who made themselves into kings (Hellenistic Kingdoms) and grabbed what they could in the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Rome progressively absorbed them into its empire by the end of the 1st Century BCE.
Greek is someone-something from Greece. Like german/Germany

They're not the same, however the Romans adopted a lot of Greek ideas and integrated with their own. The Greeks invented catapults, and the Romans improved on it and invented …the 'ballista.' The Romans also got the idea of a play from the Greeks, and the gods as well. The architecture are similar in both cultures as well/
Ancient Rome and ancient Greece (specifically Athens) were similar in many ways. When the ancient Romans conquered Greece they were inspired by the Greek culture and transferr…ed many aspects of it to their own. For example, the Roman gods were more or less identical to their Greek counterparts except with different names (Zeus became Jupiter, Athena became Juno etc.). Also the Romans copied and, in many cases, improved upon the Greek style of architecture. Also most Roman teachers and secretaries were Greek slaves.
The Olympics were invented in Ancient Greece

Ancient Greece had much less technology, and their democracy (direct democracy) is very different from the current Greek democracy. Also, Ancient Greece believed in Greek gods… and that they caused natural disasters, while today Greece has scientific explanations for natural events. There are many other differences. You should search this on Google.
