Greek and Sanskrit (or at least some closely related Prakrits) were in contact during the Indo-Greek period; Ashoka left inscriptions in Greek, a few Indian languages and Aramaic for instance.thesaurus wrote:If you think about a "classical language" language as one that has a long, developed literary tradition, then Sanskrit would definitely count. And as an Indo-European language, you could definitely make a case for grouping it along with Greek and Latin. I'd be interested to know the extent to which Sanskrit, Latin, and Greek came into contact historically (possibly never?).
One of those languages I'd love to learn, but probably never will...
