> > The land in question, with its modern capital at Skopje, was
> > called Paionia in antiquity. Mts. Barnous and Orbelos (which form today
> > the northern limits of Greece) provide a natural barrier that separated,
> > and separates, Macedonia from its northern neighbor. The only real
> > connection is along the Axios/Vardar River and even this valley "does not
> > form a line of communication because it is divided by gorges."
> >
> >
> > While it is true that the Paionians were subdued by Philip II,
> > father of Alexander, in 358 B.C. they were not Macedonians and did not
> > live
> > in Macedonia. Likewise, for example, the Egyptians, who were subdued by
> > Alexander, may have been ruled by Macedonians, including the famous
> > Cleopatra, but they were never Macedonians themselves, and Egypt was never
> > called Macedonia.
> >
> >
> > Rather, Macedonia and Macedonian Greeks have been located for
> > at least 2,500 years just where the modern Greek province of Macedonia is.
> > Exactly this same relationship is true for Attica and Athenian Greeks,
> > Argos and Argive Greeks, Corinth and Corinthian Greeks, etc.
> >
> >
> > We do not understand how the modern inhabitants of ancient
> > Paionia, who speak Slavic - a language introduced into the Balkans about a
> > millennium after the death of Alexander - can claim him as their national
> > hero. Alexander the Great was thoroughly and indisputably Greek. His
> > great-great-great grandfather, Alexander I, competed in the Olympic Games
> > where participation was limited to Greeks.
> >
> >
> > Even before Alexander I, the Macedonians traced their ancestry
> > to Argos, and many of their kings used the head of Herakles - the
> > quintessential Greek hero - on their coins.
> >
> >
> > Euripides - who died and was buried in Macedonia- wrote his
> > play Archelaos in honor of the great-uncle of Alexander, and in Greek.
> > While in Macedonia, Euripides also wrote the Bacchai, again in Greek.
> > Presumably the Macedonian audience could understand what he wrote and what
> > they heard.
> >
> >
> > Alexander's father, Philip, won several equestrian victories at
> > Olympia and Delphi, the two most Hellenic of all the sanctuaries in
> > ancient
> > Greece where non-Greeks were not allowed to compete. Even more
> > significantly, Philip was appointed to conduct the Pythian Games at Delphi
> > in 346 B.C. In other words, Alexander the Great's father and his
> > ancestors
> > were thoroughly Greek. Greek was the language used by Demosthenes and his
> > delegation from Athens when they paid visits to Philip, also in 346 B.C.
> >
> >
> > Another northern Greek, Aristotle, went off to study for nearly
> > 20 years in the Academy of Plato. Aristotle subsequently returned to
> > Macedonia and became the tutor of Alexander III. They used Greek in their
> > classroom which can still be seen near Naoussa in Macedonia.
> >
> >
> > Alexander carried with him throughout his conquests Aristotle's
> > edition of Homer's Iliad. Alexander also spread Greek language and
> > culture
> > throughout his empire, founding cities and establishing centers of
> > learning
> > . Hence inscriptions concerning such typical Greek institutions as the
> > gymnasium are found as far away as Afghanistan. They are all written in
> > Greek.
> >
> >
> > The questions follow: Why was Greek the lingua franca all over
> > Alexander's empire if he was a "Macedonian"? Why was the New Testament,
> > for example, written in Greek?
> >
> >
> > The answers are clear: Alexander the Great was Greek, not
> > Slavic, and Slavs and their language were nowhere near Alexander or his
> > homeland until 1000 years later. This brings us back to the geographic
> > area known in antiquity as Paionia. Why would the people who live there
> > now call themselves Macedonians and their land Macedonia? Why would they
> > abduct a completely Greek figure and make him their national hero?
> >
> >
> > The ancient Paionians may or may not have been Greek, but they
> > certainly became Greekish, and they were never Slavs. They were also not
> > Macedonians. Ancient Paionia was a part of the Macedonian Empire. So
> > were
> > Ionia and Syria and Palestine and Egypt and Mesopotamia and Babylonia and
> > Bactria and many more. They may thus have become "Macedonian"
> > temporarily,
> > but none was ever "Macedonia". The theft of Philip and Alexander by a
> > land
> > that was never Macedonia cannot be justified.
> >
> >
> > The traditions of ancient Paionia could be adopted by the
> > current residents of that geographical area with considerable
> > justification. But the extension of the geographic term "Macedonia" to
> > cover southern Yugoslavia cannot. Even in the late 19th century, this
> > misuse implied unhealthy territorial aspirations.
> >
> >
> > The same motivation is to be seen in school maps that show the
> > pseudo-greater Macedonia, stretching from Skopje to Mt. Olympus and
> > labeled
> > in Slavic. The same map and its claims are in calendars, bumper
> > stickers,
> > bank notes, etc., that have been circulating in the new state ever since
> > it
> > declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Why would a poor
> > land-locked new state attempt such historical nonsense? Why would it
> > brazenly mock and provoke its neighbor?
> >
> >
> > However one might like to characterize such behavior, it is
> > clearly not a force for historical accuracy, nor for stability in the
> > Balkans. It is sad that the United States of America has abetted and
