Thayer's Expanded Definition

Ἕλλην, Ἕλληνος, ;

1. a Greek by nationality, whether a native of the main land or of the Greek islands or colonies: Acts 18:17 Rec.; Ἕλληνες τέ καί βάρβαροι, Romans 1:14.

2. in a wider sense the name embraces all nations not Jews that made the language, customs, and learning of the Greeks their own; so that where Ἕλληνες are opposed to Jews, the primary reference is to a difference of religion and worship: John 7:35 (cf. Meyer at the passage); Acts 11:20 G L T Tr (cf. B. D. American edition, p. 967); Acts 16:1, 3; (Acts 21:28); 1 Corinthians 1:22, 23 Rec.; Galatians 2:3 (Josephus, Antiquities 20, 11, 2); Ἰουδαῖοι τέ καί Ἕλληνες, and the like: Acts 14:1; Acts 18:4; Acts 19:10, 17; Acts 20:21; Romans 1:16; Romans 2:9, 10; Romans 3:9; Romans 10:12; 1 Corinthians 1:24; 1 Corinthians 10:32; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:11. The word is used in the same wide sense by the Greek church Fathers, cf. Otto on Tatian, p. 2; (Sophocles' Lexicon, under the word). The Ἕλληνες spoken of in John 12:20 and Acts 17:4 are Jewish proselytes from the Gentiles; see προσήλυτος, 2. (Cf. B. D. under the word etc. (especially American edition).)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the ordinance of Euergetes II. P Tebt I. 5.168 (B.C. 118) Ἕλληνας = ";probably. . .all non-Egyptian soldiers, whether Macedonians, Cretans, Persians, etc."; The editors compare the opposition between Greeks and Egyptians later in the same decree. This illustrates excellently the familiar antithesis between Jews and ";Greeks,"; so pronounced in Mark 7:26, to which an exact parallel is quoted below.
