The Lebanese Hellenistic period was a time of great cultural and political change in the region. After the conquest of Alexander the Great in the 4th century BC, Lebanon became part of the Hellenistic Empire. During this period, the Lebanese adopted many aspects of Greek culture, such as language, religion, and art. One of your ancestors may have been a Lebanese scholar who studied Greek philosophy and literature in one of the great libraries of the time. Another of your ancestors may have been a Lebanese artist who created mosaics and sculptures in the Greek style.
