This army represents the last phases of Minoan civilisation once Crete had fallen to Greek speaking invaders – it might therefore equally well be described as an Helladic or Achaean force covering the early Greek city states of the Aegean region. Some scholars identify the Cretans and surrounding Aegean islands with the Sea Peoples who invaded Egypt and the Levant in the time of Rameses III. The Hyksos pharoahs of Avaris built palaces decorated in Minoan style and the last (Great Hyksos) arguably have Greek names.
