From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Achaeans are the inhabitants of Achaea in Greece. However, the meaning of Achaea changed during the course of Ancient history, and thus Achaeans may refer to:

  • Achaeans (Homer), a name used by Homer in the Iliad for Mycenaean-era Greeks in general.
  • Achaeans (tribe), one of the major tribes of Greece according to the Hesiodic foundation myth
  • Achaea Phthiotis, a region of ancient Thessaly
  • Achaea, the modern Greek administrative unit
