The Greek cities sent their surplus populations out and established city-states around the Mediterranean and Black Seas. Some were sent to North Africa - eg Tripoli (Tripolis in Greek = three cities). Then Alexander the great captured Egypt and Libya, establishing Greek cities eg Alexanddia named after himself.

No. The two terms refer to almost completely different regions and times, though the influence of what we call "Ancient Greece" certainly extended to portions of what had, at one time, been "Ancient Egypt." Greece was not located in ancient Egypt. It is in southwestern Europe, across the Mediterranean Sea from Egypt in northern Africa.
