Classical Greece was a period of around 200 years (5th and 4th centuries BC) in Greek culture. This Classical period saw the annexation of much of modern-day Greece by the Persian Empire and its subsequent independence. Classical Greece had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire and on the foundations of Western civilization. The traditional date range of classical Greece is the defeat of Persia in 480 B.C. until the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.
