achaeans defined in 1939 yearachaeans - Achaeans (Gr. Achaioi);
achaeans - In Homer, the general term for all Greeks as opposed to Trojans. Strictly they appear to have been the inhabitants of Greece prior to the Dorian invasion. These Achaeans came from the N. some time before 1000 b.c., and displaced a yet older people popularly known as Pelasgians. They seem to have been tall and fair, and were probably akin to the Celts. In historical times the name Achaeans was confined to the inhabitants of the Peloponnesian state of Achaea.
