Macedonian Imprint

The Macedonian Imprint on the Hellenistic World

"The Macedonian Imprint on the Hellenistic World" is a scientific paper by British professor of classics N.G.L.Hammond.

In it he explains the reasons why the age after the death of Alexander the Great unjustly called "Hellenistic" (because of XIX-th century German historians in awe with the culture of ancient Hellas) should really bare the name "Macedonian" or "Macedonistic" because of the Macedonian and not Greek imprint on the world at that time.
