Indeed, the position of Classical Greece as a trading crossroads in the Eastern Mediterranean, allowed its people to come into contact with numerous religions adhered to by people in the other trading nations, which immediately led the more philosophical Greeks to start asking some fundamental questions, such as "they can't all be right, so are any of them right?" :)

Which probably explains why the word 'atheism' itself is of Greek origin.
