The opening words of Amos in Greek
"uncials" (capitals only) and "miniscules"
Greek was the language of Alexander's empire and so the language of the East under the Romans. It was the common language of the New Testament writers. An early translation of the Hebrew Bible, the LXX, makes Greek important for Old Testament text criticism.
