This ngram shows the frequency of the mention of the words Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Egypt

Taking what I already know from another class about the decline and subsequent rise in interest in the history of ancient greece, this visualization illustrates the decline and rise of writing about, or featuring, Ancient Greece.  Additionally, the steady decline of the mention of Ancient Rome is interesting and could be cause for further investigation.
