  Megali Idea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Megali Idea implied the goal of reestablishing a Greek state as ancient geographer Strabo wrote, with a Greek world extending west from Sicily, to Mikra Asia (Asia Minor) and Euxenus Pontus (Black Sea) to the east, and from Macedonia and Epirus, north, to Crete and Cyprus to the south.
The Great Idea encompassed a desire to bring these groups into the Greek state; specifically in the territories of Epirus, Thessaly, Macedonia, the Aegean Islands, Crete, Cyprus, parts of Anatolia, and the city of Constantinople, that would replace Athens as the capital.
Although the Great Idea ceased to be a driving force behind Greek foreign policy after the Treaty of Lausanne, some remnants continued to influence Greek foreign policy throughout the remainder of the 20th century.
