Who is Who in Greek Antiquity

To the right is a list of ancient Greeks who for one reason or the other have gone down to posterity. It is sometimes difficult to know whether a person in antiquity or mythology really existed or not, so if you can't find the name you're looking for here, have a look at the Who is Who in Greek Mythology as well. We have tried to separate the names as clearly as possible but in some instances the line between reality and myth is very vague.
The usual practice when naming a child in Greece is to use one of the grandparents' name. Ancient names from history and myth are getting more and more popular and there are many Aphrodites and Socrates around. You might also have a Greek name without even knowing it. Have a look at "Is your name Greek?" to find out.
