Abstract In order to provide arguments for the discussion about the notion of ‘colonisation’, the article deals with characteristics of the two large Hellenistic empires that had been established outside Europe in territories conquered by Alexander the Great, the Ptolemaic and the Seleucid. The central feature dealt with is the foundation of new settlements. The details discussed here are the founders, the settlers – Greeks and Macedonians, but also indigenes – special features of the settlements – military colonies and civic towns – the geographical situation, and the mixtures of peoples and cultures in the settlements.
