It's hard to truly calculate the impact Ancient Greece has had on modern civilization. They helped usher in the first known novels, created freaking democracy, and showed the world how doing 200 sit-ups a day can really showcase one's stomach muscles.
It only makes sense, then, that hundreds of movies and shows have been set in ancient Greece starring Greek characters. There are films like Hercules focusing on Greece's ancient religion, or Alexander the Great focusing on their militaristic conquests, or even 300 focusing on those sick, sick abs. But the question remains, who is the best Greek character ever? Would it be a Spartan warrior or an Athenian scholar? Either way, Ranker has created a list of some of the greatest Greek characters in film and TV history.
So take a break from all those sit-ups and vote up a few of your favorites Greek characters. Is your favorite not on the list? Go ahead and add them!
