A period in ancient Mediterranean history. Defined by modern scholars, the Hellenistic period runs from the conquests of Alexander (336 BC) to Octavian's victory at Actium (31 BC). It was characterized by the expansion of Greek culture and trade throughout the Mediterranean. Bibliography: OCD, s.v. "Hellenism, Hellenization"
From 338 - 146 B.C. Greece expanded its influence over a large area. Phillip II of Macedonia began by taking over Greece and the city-states that were rundown from the many wars during the Classical Period. After his assassination, his son Alexander the Great conquered Syria, Palestine, Egypt (where he founded Alexandria), Persia, northern Afghanistan, and northern India thus spreading "Hellenism" throughout a great area. After Alexander's death his conquered territories were divided and weakened, thus ushering in the period of Roman control.
That culture associated with the spread of Greek influence as a result of Macedonian conquests; often seen as the combination of Greek culture with eastern political forms. (p. 125)
The Hellenistic period (4th - 1st c. BC), if the figures of Alexander the Great and Cleopatra are excluded, is relatively less known among the Greek eras. It's often considered a period of transition, sometimes even of decline or decadence, between the brilliance of the Greek Classical Era and the strength of the Roman Empire.
