Freelang Koine Greek-English dictionary

Koine comes from the Greek word that means "common". Koine Greek was the form of Greek that was spoken during Hellenistic (300 BC-30 BC) and Roman (30 BC-300 AD) antiquity. Its development followed the conquests of Alexander the Great, that's why Koine Greek is sometimes named Alexandrian dialect. Koine Greek became the common lingua franca in the Mediterranean region and the Middle East. It was the main language of the Byzantine Empire and it evolved into Medieval Greek, which is the ancestor of Modern Greek. Koine is also the language of the Christian New Testament, that's why it's sometimes known as "Biblical Greek" or "New Testament Greek".
