  Hellenismos FAQ   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The most basic value of Hellenism is eusebeia, which is often translated as "piety." For Hellenes, piety means a deep-rooted personal commitment to the traditional worship of the Hellenic gods and a life of action to back up that commitment.
It must be admitted that some individual Hellenes harbor lingering anger toward their birth religions, usually as a result of abuse at the hands of religious leaders or well-meaning family members.
Some Hellenes would say that there is wisdom to be found there, but the Bible is not our holy book, and as we are not in a covenant relationship with the Hebrew father god or with Christ, we do not consider ourselves bound by Biblical law.

 The Anabasis book 4
But the Hellenes, raising the battle hymn, dashed at them at a run, and they did not await them; armed well enough for mountain warfare, and with a view to sudden attack followed by speedy flight, they were not by any means sufficiently equipped for an engagement at close quarters.
After this the Hellenes dismissed the guide with a present raised from the common store, to wit, a horse, a silver bowl, a Persian dress, and ten darics; but what he most begged to have were their rings, and of these he got several from the soldiers.
In the first instance, the Hellenes drew up opposite in line of battle, as though they were minded to assault the hill in that order; but afterwards the generals determined to hold a council of war, and consider how to make the fairest fight.

 <<-- Greek City-->>: THE HELLENES
Hellenism proposes a man as a full and equal participant, beautiful in his nature, proud in his being and creator of his destiny; Christianity proposes a man as a blind puppet to a strange puppeteer, hideous in his denial of his spirit, his body, his nature and a slave to chance and superstition.
Hellenism proposes a man of wisdom through effort, knowledge and ability; a dominator of what is beneath him and builder of his world.
Hellenism breeds men of the world: brave, proud, aware, challenging, changing, becoming and knowing; while Christianity breeds sheep for slaughter: meek, huddled in pools of “averageness” and hoping for a better death than a life.

The Egyptians told me that he was the only son of him who first became king of Egypt, and that he died before his time and was honoured with these lamentations by the Egyptians, and that this was their first and only song.
In another respect the Egyptians are in agreement with some of the Hellenes, namely with the Lacedemonians, but not with the rest, that is to say, the younger of them when they meet the elder give way and move out of the path, and when their elders approach, they rise out of their seat.
Hellenic usages they will by no means follow, and to speak generally they follow those of no other men whatever.

 Putnam on Synonymity and Belief
Consequently, given these current theories and additional premises which seem beyond dispute, the assumption that "Greek" and "Hellene" are synonymous leads to the conclusion that they are not synonymous, -- and similarly in the case of any other pair of different terms.
On this assumption, the truth of (3) does not presuppose that Jones uses the word "Greek", nor the truth of (4) that he uses the word "Hellene," nor the joint truth of (3) and (4) that he has two words by which to refer to the inhabitants of Greece.
For given the initial premise of the discussion (the synonymity in our usage of "Greek" and "Hellene") and the relevant interpretation of belief (and doubt) sentences, this would be equivalent to the overtly self-contradictory combination (e)- true-and-(e)-false.

At this point the king and the Hellenes were something like three miles apart; the one set were pursuing their opponents just as if their conquest had been general; the others were pillaging as merrily as if their victory were already universal.
But when the Hellenes learnt that the king and his troops were in the baggage camp; and the king, on his side, was informed by Tissaphernes that the Hellenes were victorious in their quarter of the field, and had gone forward in pursuit, the effect was instantaneous.
But as soon as the Hellenes again moved onwards, the hostile cavalry at once left the hillock--not in a body any longer, but in fragments--some streaming from one side, some from another; and the crest was gradually stripped of its occupants, till at last the company was gone.

Greece will need to make full use of its resources both locally and overseas to make its commercial governance a model to other countries and thus fulfil the dreams of their ancient forefathers who taught that "knowledge is power", bestowing these so generously, both in volume and quality, to future generations.
The bond of homeland Greece and Cyprus with overseas Hellenes is of principal importance to all concerned.
