 It seems that empires grew a lot in size in large parts of the world (Eurasia/Northafrica from Pacific to Atlantic) in a few centuries from the Persian Empire after Kyrus to the time of roman emperor Hadrian. Perhaps there was some "larger proces", or even spread, maybe starting from Western Asia (Media, Persia, Babylonia), first to the indian and greek borders, later to rome, southwards on Indian continent. Could even China be included? the time between Alexander and the first centralised Imperial China" were about 100 years. Persian invasions in Southheast Europe, in particular Greece and Macedonia may, have created more intense strife for hegemony or "empire" and also in some way shown practical ways for getting it. Romans, Carthagians may in turn have learned lessons especialy from The Macedonian and "hellenistic" rulers. After all they imitated thje greeks in so many other ways, and the period of rise of Rome above a local italian power were not so many decades after Phillip and Alexanders era (from the late 3.rd to 2,nd century). Perhaps some influence went through intermediate tribes, states and peoples in ways not very easy to get hold on?
