Heraclea Lyncestis excavation project

There are 30 comments on the www.archaeological.org story from Oct 20, 2010, titled Heraclea Lyncestis excavation project. In it, www.archaeological.org reports that:

According to the Athenian orator and lawyer Demosthenes, Heraclea was founded by Philip II (the father of Alexander the Great), as a strategic centre of the north-western Macedonian province of Lyncestis. Heraclea was named in honour of Heracles (Hercules), the claimed progenitor of the ruling Macedonian dynasty which Philip belonged to. The epithet “Lyncestis” means “the Land of the Lynx” in Greek. Nowadays the ruins of the ancient city lie at the western side of modern town of Bitola.

Are you sick in the head, bre tikva?

Ancient Macedonian had GREEK ETHNIC ORIGINS...

If you want to segregate yourself in your world , thats fine, but 'Macedonia' as you perceive it to be, was, is, and always will be Greek.

If you want to differentiate your so-called 'Macedonia' then you belong to FYROM.

I typed in your version of macedonia in Google and world languages and your writing came up as Bulgarian, Please explain. Also you government sources and international listing of your people are seen as southern slavs, with langauge codified in 1944.

Greek has been Greek for 3000 years malaka, it just been accepted in most world countries as heritage including Australia in 2010. It looks like your propaganda is all but finished. Sydney University ran lectures this years to community groups about the very issue, that the slav macedonia is a myth, and is fueled by governement propaganda, 200 people could not stop laughing at the outrages comments but the FYROM people about God, Rosetta stone, you thinking having DNA links with the ancients etc. the list is too big, the lie you created for yourself is just palin stupid and funny, you lack one important ingrient to all of this, its called Real facts. Something you always lacked.

Macedonia belongs to Greece.

It is historically approved by many historians from all over the world that the people of Skopje are Slavs or other races, but have nothing to do with the people of Alexander the Great!

Macedonians were Greeks and spoke the Greek language. Numerous excavations in all of the ancient Macedonia area have consistently unearthed relics clearly with Greek writings, and depictions of rulers clearly designated with Greek names.

In ancient Greek culture, Macedonians celebrated the same festivals with the rest of the Greeks. They took part in the Olympic games which at the time was only participated in by the Hellenes.

The regions that comprised the area of Macedonia all had Greek names.

Furthermore, the architecture of the palaces, temples, theaters & ancient markets are all characteristic samples of ancient Greek architecture of the time.

These Hellenic structures clearly included Greek writings on them which without a shodow of a doubt prove that they were dveloped by the Greeks and belonged to the Greeks.

The ancient Macedonians believed in the same 12 Gods of Olympus as the rest of the Hellenes. In addition, the Macedonians fought together with the rest of the Hellenes against barbarians.

To the Greeks at the time, a barbarian was defined as any group of people who did not share the same developed culture. Any group of people outside of civilized Greece was defended against by all of Greece, which included Macedonia.

Last but certainly not least, Macedonia was a member of the Delphic Amfictiony, an institution which was open only to Greeks.....

The people of Skopje are Slavs or other races, but have nothing to do with the people of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian Greeks !

The Ancient Macedonians were undoubtedly a Greek tribe; either a north-western tribe related to the Dorians and Epirots, or an Aeolic one related to the Aeolians of Thessaly (before the north-western tribe of the Thessalians settled there), as scholars tend to accept today.

Nowadays it is not seriously doubted that they were Greeks, although some opposing views have been expressed by certain modern historians and linguists because the evidence of ancient writers has not been interpreted correctly and the relatively limited linguistic material preserved has not been evaluated correctly

The Ancient Macedonians initially settled in NW Macedonia. Later they expanded into the fertile valley of Haliakmon river, where, after having driven back or subjugated the Illyrian and Thracian tribes, they established the Macedonian state.

During this time the regions of NW Macedonia remained independent hegemonies.

Later on, the kingdom of Macedonia expanded up to the Strymon river. Their relative isolation for centuries, in the country that bears their name, greatly contributed to their developing autonomous unity, both social and political, without being greatly influenced by other Greeks and, therefore, without the cultural development of the southern regions

Ancient sources affirm that the ancient Macedonians were Greeks, and the linguistic conclusions, which are based on the study of the Macedonian dialect, also attest to this.

Modern Slavs, both Bulgarians and Macedonians, cannot establish a link with antiquity, as the Slavs entered the Balkans centuries after the demise of the ancient Macedonian kingdom. Only the most radical Slavic factions—mostly emi-gres in the United States, Canada, and Australia—even attempt to establish a connection to antiquity.

To end this non-sence dispitute, Yes, Macedonians were Greeks!
