Why was Greece called the grandeur that was Greece?
No, no, it was the glory that was Greece, and the grandeur that was Rome. Ancient Rome was certainly grand, and to modern thinking the Greece of ancient times seems glorious in many ways, with its art, architecture, literature, and philosophy.

The Greco-Roman culture has had a tremendous influence on Western Civilization, an influence well recognized by those living in the 19th century. The reason why Poe came up wi…th those two names. As to the quote itself: "The glory that was Greece" refers to the many important contributions that the Greeks made to Western philosophy, science and art(among other things). They were 'the first'. Their achievements were new and original, different from all the nations living around the Mediterranean sea. "...the grandeur that was Rome" refers to the sheer size and scale of Rome, and the Roman world in general. Think of the aquaducts, the enormous bathhouses, the lavishly decorated Forum Romanum, the Colloseum. The mighty emperors dressed in purple and gold lording over most of the Mediterranean from their stunning palace on the Palatine. The Romans were heavily influenced by Greek ideas about art and science, so in that respect they were not as original as the Greeks had been. The Romans did however build on a massive scale, they meant to impress, and they ruled over a large empire for a long time, something which can not be said about the Greeks(the empire of Alexander fell apart after he died). Therefore Greece is glory and Rome is grandeur.
The Greeks called and still call themselves Hellenes. They overpopulated their small and poor country, and the city states sent out their surplus populations into colonies …around the Mediterranean and Black Seas. Some colonies were established in Italy (Naples = Nea Polis, new city, Tarentum, Sybaris, Croton etc plus plenty in Sicily). In their expansion down the Italian Peninsula in the 4th and 3rd Centuries BCE, the Romans encountered a Latin tribe called the Graeci . As they went further they ran into the Greek cities at the bottom of Italy, and thinking them to be a lot more of the Graeci tribe, called them the Magna Graeci . The word Graeci (anglicised to 'Greek') was erroneously extended to the home country and people of the widespread Hellenic colonies, and the word Greek has stuck .
