Greek ideas were influencing people from Gibraltar to India.Greek architecture was copied for new buildings. Alexander was a great general who feared nothing. He crushed the Persian empire and marched as far as India. He would have gone farther than the 22,000 miles he already went but his troops refused. The light house of Alexandria was one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. It towered over two of Alexandria's harbors. A fire ontop provided light to guide ships to port. The harbors were protected by breakwaters, or barriers that break the force of waves. The most famous city founded by Alexander was Alexandria, Egypt.

Once the statue had been built by the artist Epeius, a number of the Greek warriors, along with Odysseus, climbed inside. The rest of the Greek fleet sailed away, so as to deceive the Trojans.
One man, Sinon, was left behind. When the Trojans came to marvel at the huge creation, Sinon pretended to be angry with the Greeks, stating that they had deserted him. He assured the Trojans that the wooden horse was safe and would bring luck to the Trojans.
Only two people, Laocoon and Cassandra, spoke out against the horse, but they were ignored. The Trojans celebrated what they thought was their victory, and dragged the wooden horse into Troy.

That night, after most of Troy was asleep or in a drunken stupor, Sinon let the Greek warriors out from the horse, and they slaughtered the Trojans. Priam was killed as he huddled by Zeus' altar.
After the war, Polyxena, daughter of Priam, was sacrificed at the tomb of Achilles and Astyanax, son of Hector, was also sacrificed, signifying the end of the war.

The theater pictured here, for example, is set on the slopes of Mt. Parnassus above the famous temple of Apollo at Delphi which is home of the Delphic oracle that figures so prominently in the myth of Oedipus.
Ancient Greek theaters were very large, open-air structures that took advantage of sloping hillsides for their terraced seating. Because of drama's close connection with religion, theaters were often located in or near sanctuaries.
The core of any Greek theater is the orchestra, or the “dancing place” of the chorus and the chief performance space. Almost nothing remains from the fifth-century structure of the Theater of Dionysus in Athens, but later theaters suggest that the original orchestras were full circles.
The roots of ancient Greek theater lie in the cult of Dionysus, the god of wine and fertility, one of the Olympian deities honored in the Greek world.
In ancient Greek times, Dionysus' followers sometimes assumed these roles (pretended to be satyrs/ being half goat or horse or maenads/ an unnaturally excited or distraught woman) in their religious rituals, resulting in much singing, drinking, and dancing in honor of their god.
