I think "Greece" would be good to accept, since the country name is accepted for other answers.

That also applies to other answers. It is illogical to require the answer to include the word "empire" for some but not others. Also, I think that Alexander the Great was Macedonian - but you've forgotten that.

The Ancient Egyptian empire had possessions in the levant, technically the Ottoman Empire's capital was in Europe (Constantinople) and I think you should "flesh out" what you mean by "Greek Empire". Do you mean the Byzantine Empire, the empire of Alexander the Great or the colonies of various Greek City States that were established in Ionia and other areas of Asia Minor?

Enjoyed this, well done.
