Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics: An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament. Attic Greek is the prestige dialect of Ancient Greek that was spoken in Atticawhich includes Athens.
Of the ancient dialects, it is the most similar to later Greek, and is the standard form of the language studied in courses of "Ancient Greek". It is sometimes included in Ionic.
Contents [ show ] Origin and range Greek is a branch of the Indo-European language family, which includes English. In historical times, it already existed in several dialects see article on Greek dialectsone of which was Attic.
The earliest written records in Greek date from the 16th to 11th centuries BC and exist in an archaic writing system, Linear Bbelonging to the Mycenaean Greeks.
The distinction between Eastern and Western Greek is believed to have arisen by Mycenaean times or before.
Mycenaean Greek represents an early form of Eastern Greek, a main branching to which Attic also belongs. Because of the gap in the written record between the disappearance around BC of Linear B and the earliest inscriptions in the later Greek alphabet around BC,  the further development of dialects remains opaque.
Later Greek literature wrote of three main dialect divisions: AeolicDoric and Ionic. Attic was part of the Ionic dialect group. The cultural dominance of the Athenian Empire and the later adoption of Attic Greek by king Philip II of Macedon BCfather of the conqueror Alexander the Greatwere the two keys that ensured the eventual victory of Attic over other Greek dialects and the spread of its descendant, Koine, throughout Alexander's Hellenic empire.
The rise of Koine is conventionally marked by the accession in BC of Greek-speaking Ptolemy IIwho ruled from AlexandriaEgypt and launched the "Alexandrian period", when the city of Alexandria and its expatriate Greek-medium scholars flourished. The closely related dialect called "Ionian" was spoken along the western and northwestern coasts of Asia Minor modern Turkey on the east side of the Aegean Sea.
Eventually, literary Attic and the classic texts written in it came to be widely studied far beyond its original homeland, first in the Classical civilizations of the Mediterranean Ancient Rome and the Hellenistic worldand later in the Muslim worldEurope, and wherever European civilization spread to other parts of the world.
Literature The earliest recorded Greek literaturethat attributed to Homer and dated to the 8th or 7th centuries BC, was not written in the Attic dialect, but in "Old Ionic". Athens and its dialect remained relatively obscure until its constitutional changes led to democracy in BC, the start of the classical period and the rise of Athenian influence.
The first extensive works of literature in Attica are the plays of the dramatists AeschylusSophoclesEuripides and Aristophanes in the 5th century BC. The military exploits of the Athenians led to some universally read and admired history, the works of Thucydides and Xenophon.
