MACEDONIA WAS A STATE OF GREECE ACCORDING TO PLUTARCHOS [& NOT ONLY}
AND MANY OTHER ANCIENT SOURCES-NEVER B4 THIS WAS EVER DOUBTED, till today when sick fyromians try to deny all proof!
Alexander was king of Macedon, one of the states of Greece.He first conquered the other Grecian states, & then Persia, & India, & other countries one by one, till the whole known world was conquered by him.
Plutarchos,[Loeb, FC Babbitt]
ISOCRATIS ALSO SPEAKS ABOUT MACEDONIA AS A STATE OF GREECE
Isocrates, Speeches and Letters, "To Philip"
To YOU (Philip) AND ALL THE OTHER Hellenes
unless the GREATEST STATES OF HELLAS should resolve to put an end to their mutual quarrels and carry the war beyond our borders into Asia and should determine to wrest from the barbarians the advantages which they now think it proper to get for themselves at the expense of the Hellenes"
STRABO CONFIRMS THAT MACEDONIAN STATE WAS A PART OF GREECE
"And Macedonia, of course, is a part of Greece."
(Strab. VII, Frg. 9)
CURTIUS ALSO SPEAKS ABOUT MACEDONIA AS A STATE OF GREECE
Alexander was a thorough Greek, and recognized the future of Macedonia as depending on her intimate connection with the other Hellenic states.
The city of Pella began to be not only the ‘greatest city in Macedonia’,but a centre of Greek culture
(Curtius-The History of Greece Vol. 2 Book)
FILIPPOS FIRST CONQUERED THE BIGGER MONARCHY OF GREECE, MACEDONIA, so first Macedons FOUGHT Macedons b4 attacking the rest of Greeks
“Is considered this king (Philip) began his monarchy with the bad conditions and he conquered the bigger monarchy of HELLENES [GREEKS]: Macedonia,
increasing the hegemony no so much with the heroism of arms, as long as with the skilful handlings and his diplomacy.”
(Diodorus Sikeliotis, 16-95)
MODERN HISTORIANS AGREE THAT MACEDONIA WAS A GREEK STATE
King Filippos enslaved first the Macedons that fought against him in Kastoria.
He even killed the majority of those Macedons.
He was fighting 4 years against Macedons.
The same story in all GREEK STATES
*”In less than four years he (Filippos) had transformed Macedonia from a backward and primitive kingdom ”’to one of the most powerful states in Greece”’”
(Peter Green page 8-9)
MANY GREEK STATES CONQUERED EACH OTHER.
Macedonians unified Greece & established the Corinthian league of ALLIED GREEKS and only Greeks,
They led Greece against Persians to revenge them for their prior outrages on all Greeks
THEIR WORDS NOT MINE
All historians refer to this unification. Why do Fyromians deny it?
CAN A STINKY SCOPIANOGIAN ANSWER? I GUESS NOT. hehe
ANOTHER QUESTION THAT WILL NEVER BE ANSWERED!
WHY DO FYROMIANS DENY REAL FACTS?
Filippos fought against Macedonians that were rejecting his rule , he even hold hostages his own people that disagreed & he enslaved first the Macedons that fought against him, afterwards he fought against any Greeks that rejected his call for unity. King Filippos started to unite all Greek states. Megas Alexandros succeeded & drove all Hellines to a glorious adventure revenging the Persians for prior invasion to his homeland GREECE as he said
