Greeks were way before the Dark Age :smiley: and way after the imperial age :smiley:. Everything in between is represented by the Byzantines and Turks

You get the Byzantines. What else did you want?

Maybe he did not notice byzantines as greeks because they speak latin instead of greek?

Byzantines are Romans, not Greeks. Turks are most certainly not Greeks.
Turks are Persians. Italians are Romans.

They are not the same, they don’t share neither the language, culture, faith, race…

i never said they are the same … but Greece didn’t exist between the rise of the roman empire all the way until late 19th century, because it was either part of Byzantium or part of Ottoman (turks) empire. So Greece skipped the whole period that AOE represents.


I can see. Thank you for the information, I will try byzantines :smiley:

To give a short answer to this ineffable amount of concentrated ignorance; Turks are NOT Persians, Italians are NOT Romans and Byzantines were MOSTLY Greeks or Hellenized subjects of the eastern half of the Roman empire.
If you want to play a Greek civ, this is it.


WTF are you talking about?
“Greece didn’t exist between the rise of the roman empire all the way until late 19th century”??? Please do some research before posting that kind of bs.
Byzantines were Greeks. Romans were Romans.
" The Byzantine Empire, also referred to as the Eastern Roman Empire or Byzantium, was the continuation of the Roman Empire in its eastern provinces during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, when its capital city was Constantinople. It survived the fragmentation and fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century AD and continued to exist for an additional thousand years until the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Empire in 1453. During most of its existence, the empire was the most powerful economic, cultural, and military force in Europe."
