Most Important People in Ancient Classical History

Most Important People in Ancient Classical History
From the ancienthistory.about.com article:
When dealing with Ancient/Classical History, the difference between history and legend is not always clear. Evidence is scant for many people from the start of writing to the Fall of Rome (A.D. 476). With this reminder, here is my list of the most important people in the ancient world. In general, I exclude Biblical figures before Moses, legendary founders of Greco-Roman cities, and participants in the Trojan war or Greek mythology. Also, note the firm date 476 is violated by “the last of the Romans,” Roman Emperor Justinian. The order is thematic.
