"...Macedonian successors to Alexander the Great founded Dura-Europos on a plateau high above the Euphrates River.....Through the centuries, one culture after another left its imprint on Dura-Europos. As Dr. Bowersock pointed out, even if Romans issued military orders in Latin, the clerks and shopkeepers spoke Aramaic, and many people in the street kept their native tongues, the principal language of government and culture remained the Greek of its founders."

C'mon Boxheads, come out with it, this is another example of Greek Propaganda - The silence is deafening.

Macedonians had always Greek names, toponyms, ways, heroes, gods, dialect and spread Greek Language and Civilization to the World.
Macedonians named after Greek names ALL the cities they built or renamed.
If any modern white people do what Macedonians did we will call them Macedonians.
Whoever denies Macedonians' Greekness is ignoramus or idiot or an imbecile SlavoSkopian propagandist.
