The Hellenistic period is characterized mainly by a rise of science and knowledge . The mainly Greek culture becomes dominant in the three major spheres affected by Hellenism , Macedonia , Syria and Egypt . Later , with the expansion of Rome , each of these realms will be absorbed by the new Roman power , giving space to what historically marks as late antiquity . Before that, however , the Romans themselves were dominated by the Greeks , submitted to Hellenism , hence the Greek culture then be perpetuated by the Roman Empire .

Now there were no more boundaries between different territories , different cultures and religions . Formerly every people worshiped their own gods , but with the spread of Greek culture all turns into a big cauldron syncretic , which mixes up a variety of religious , philosophical and scientific views . Alexandria was a major center of Hellenistic culture , especially in the field of arts and literature.
