NEW YORK (BuyActive) - Many speculators have bet millions on Greece's default, a situation that could possibly lead the country and 유럽 into chaos. All these fears have succeeded in decreasing shares of BNP Paribas, Societe Generale, and Credit Agricole 의해 더 많이 than 10 percent.

Prehistoric and Bronze Age civilization
Main articles: Helladic period and Mycenaean Greece
The tribes which became the Greeks are believed to have migrated southward into the Balkan peninsula in several waves beginning in the Middle Bronze Age (roughly 2000 BC).[1] The Proto-Greek language dates to the period just preceding these migrations, either to the late 3rd millennium BC, 또는 to the 17th century BC at the latest.

Greece and the Greeks suffer in silence.
For four years, Greece is pointed, the Greeks are insulted, the country is banned, it is the plague of Europe.
