After the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC, the Hellenic world was divided among his generals. The Hellenic League was formed in 338 BC to protect the interests of the Greeks and to prevent war among the generals. In the next hundred years, the Hellenic League fought wars with the Persian Empire, the Macedonian Empire, and the Seleucid Empire. Hellenistic culture is a mixture of the cultures of the various Hellenic empires. The Hellenic League was dissolved in 146 BC by the Romans.; 318 pages.
