Alexander the Great

One way Alexander used the spread of Greek ideas to untie the different people in his kingdom was by building Greek style cities. He established many cities in different parts of the empire. Like Greek cities, they had marketplaces, temples, and theaters. Another way was by settlers flocking in from Greece. They brought with them Greek laws, art, and literature. Alexander wanted local soldiers and government to speak only Greek too!
