"Ancient Greek" is a book by Silvia Luraghi.
Ancient Greek is the form of Greek used during the periods of time spanning c. the 9th – 6th century BC, c. the 5th – 4th century BC, and c. the 3rd century BC – 6th century AD in ancient Greece and the ancient world. It was predated in the 2nd millennium BC by Mycenaean Greek. The language of the Hellenistic phase is known as Koine or Biblical Greek, while the language from the late period onward features no considerable differences from Medieval Greek. Koine is regarded as a separate historical stage of its own, although in its earlier form, it closely resembled the Classical. Prior to the Koine period, Greek of the classic and earlier periods included several regional dialects.
