Hi.
 
i have a question (probably a dumb one) i'd like to see if i can get
answered. The question is this what does hellenistic mean; and here's the
dumb part, because it sounds a lot like the word hell, i know that here's no
connection with hell concerning this word but i'd still like to know what it
means.
 
 
Thanks.
 
Dave Pursey.
