comment Was there human sacrifice in ancient Crete?
Manolis Andronikos theorized that the Mycenaeans introduced human sacrifice to Cyprus. This is strictly from memory, I couldn't find a notable source, but if human sacrifice was indeed practised in Crete, it would most probably be a Mycenaean influence.

@DVK The lines are blurry, no argument there.

@FelixGoldberg The word "civilization" doesn't appear in that article... Yes, the geographical and historical proximity of the Greek and Roman civilizations is such that they can be grouped together in extremely broad terms (note the use of the words "world" and "culture"), but there's little doubt that they were distinct civilizations.
