Culture is more than just technology don't forget. If they weren't pressed deep into our cultural memory and we only knew them from archeological diggings, we would only know the Greeks as "a few little fisher villiages in the Balkans". They did of course make some impressive technological acheivments but many of these would have gone unnoticed if we didn't know where to look.
Cultural level includes art level, intellectual level, political level, and general quality of life level among other things all of which are harder to grade than tech.
