Etymology: From Ancient Greek Ἕλλην (Héllēn, “Greek, Hellene”), from the accusative singular τόν (tón, “the”) Ἕλληνα (Héllēna, “Greek, Hellene”). In Hellenistic Christian times: "Gentile, pagan". In Medieval Greek, the sense was either a "Greek" or a derogatory term for an "idolater" (calling himself Ῥωμαῖος (Rhōmaîos), regaining its "Greek" sense after the 11th century. In Early Modern Greek the ethnonymic terms used instead were Ρωμιός (Romiós) or Γραικός (Graikós).
