Chiselled and blessed with beautiful eyes, Greek men have a reputation for setting hearts on fire and as gods.
It’s no surprise that a casual search on the Internet will produce several polls deeming Greek men to be amongst the sexiest on the planet.
The Collins English Dictionary defines the term ‘Greek god’ as a 'male deity from the ancient Greek pantheon, taken, from classical sculpture, as the archetype of male beauty.'
In recent times though, it’s more commonly used as a noun to describe men who are 'strikingly handsome and well built' – or shall we say – are of Adonis-like beauty.
With this in mind, we’ve selflessly, painstakingly researched for hours to put together a collection of famous Greek men most befitting of this description so that you may enjoy the fruits of our labour: Greek City Times List of Worlds Sexiest Greek Gods Alive 2022.
It’s been a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. Proceed with caution – it’s hot.
