Greece and Egypt have a long standing history together.
As we can see during the Hellenistc Period (323BC - 30BC), the Greek people were integrators instead of isolationists. They have a long-held
philosophy of absorbing the beneficial cultural aspects of others into their own Greek culture.
Researchers and experts differ on the exact date of the Trojan War, however, it is estimated to have occurred sometime between 1,260BC - 1,184BC.
Here's what we know about Greek and Egyptian contact:
• When Alexander the Great (356BC - 323BC) conquered Egypt in 332BC, it marked a major influx of Egyptian culture into Greece.
• Plato (428BC - 347BC) in his compilation "Timaeus-Critias"
, Plato mentions Atlantis, as told to Solon by the Egyptian priest Sais.
• Herodotus (484BC - 425BC) visited Egypt in the 4th Century-BC during the 27th Egyptian Dynasty.
• Solon (638BC - 558BC) visited Egypt during the 6th Century-BC, and learned of Atlantean and Greek history from Egyptian priest Sais.
As we can see, the historic period of Greece is still not old enough to account for the Trojan War. Or is it??.....
The Minoans of Crete, Greece flourished from 2,700BC - 1,500BC. There is evidence of Egyptian goods in Crete, and Minoan goods in Egypt as early as
the Middle Minoan Eras I and II, which would date to 2,00BC - 1,600BC.
Through the Minoan trade and contact with the Egyptians, the wadjet, Eye Of Ra, and Eye of Horus could have already been brought to Greece prior to
the Trojan War.
