In ancient times, the end of Greek independence can be tied to the year 146 B.C.E. In that year, Roman forces defeated an army composed of allied Greeks at the Battle of Corinth and thereafter ruled most of Greece as a conquered territory. Small portions of Greece remained free for a number of years afterward, and Macedon became a Roman province in its own right, but for all practical purposes, "Greece" was no longer independent.
