So the Greeks dominated the Levant and Turkey when the Hittites started to wane. But why? Why do the Greeks have extremities as far as Denmark down to Palestine- but we only have them recorded in the Hellene heartland? Just how much history are we really missing?

Probably in the same way we don't have any record of Hwan state in siberia.
There were Hellenic states as far as Bacteria. The age of Greek colonization is fascinating.

No they did not. It was not until the Hellenistic period were Greeks dominated Anatolia, Native Anatolians were running the show and were far more powerful and warlike than anything the Greeks could muster. The Lydians and Pontics are two major examples.
Shut the fuck up.
There were colonies in Anatolia since Minoan and Mycenaean times, but not the other way around.
Well, Crete was basically an Anatolian colony.
No it wasn’t , stop wewuzing you cretin. Crete had colonies in Anatolia. Not the other way around.
Minoans were Copper or Bronze Age migrants to Crete, they weren't the original farmers.
No they weren’t, shut the fuck up retard.
They literally were. They are mixed with Iran/CHG, so with post-neolithic Anatolians.
Most of their DNA was local. Greece_N already had little of that admixture.
The fact that they had Minor asmixture frim outside over the centuries does not make them Anatolian, they were their own distinct culture and they had more in common with the rest of the Aegean and Greece than with Inner Anatolia.
youre so mad lmao stop coping
Lol the only thing you can say is cope, shut the fuck up and go to the mental asylum you fucking clown.
Greeks had dozens of colonies in Anatolia, Anatolians had zero. Myriads of people from Europe crossed over to Anatolia: Phrygians, Armenians, Galatians, the opposite was never true until the Turks came, who came from Central Asia anyway.
These groups came from the Caucasus into Anatolia.
Yet another example of Celtic rape victims.
>These groups came from the Caucasus into Anatolia.
No they didn't, Phrygians came from Thrace, Herodotus confirms it and it's linguistically clear
It's related to Greek, balkanian family
>It's related to Greek, balkanian family
They split off from each other thousands of years ago and took separate migration routes.
Having colonies in coastal Anatolia is not 'dominating' Anatolia. The majority of the region was still controlled by far larger and more powerful native Anatolian Kingdoms or clans.
When the Hittites started to wane other Anatolian peoples began to dominate, followed by the Persians.
