    If they believed in Buddhism, they would have spread it. The rest of your question makes no sense.

    Hi Fishface. Are we back to this again? The Greeks didn't invent Buddhism, but some Greek rulers in the area during the 2nd Century BC supported it, or even practiced it like Mendander I. This was common in the Hellenistic world. Ptolemies in Egypt worshipped Horus and Amun(Zeus-Ammon), the Seleucids recognized Zoroastrianism and Marduk in Babylon. Syncretism was not unusual among the kingdoms of the Diadochi.
