Hahahahahahaahahahahahhahhahah aahahahahaha
The RIDICULONIANS in action!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't say Justinian was a Slav although others do speculate with this possibility!
" Justinian (483-565 CE), whose Roman name was Flavius Anicius Iustinianus, was probably born of Slavic parents in Illyricum, which stretched along the shores of the Adriatic from Italy to Macedonia. "
http://www.humanistictexts.org/justinian.htm
The name of his favorite General Belisarius makes sense only in Slavic , meaning the mighty tsar , for example .. Some of the Slavic tribes were already settling the Balkans at that period ,naming the Antes (a Roman foederate tribe probably under Gothic command) and Justinian was nicknamed as Antikos for some reason . Some speculate that he was a descendant of the Antes as well , who knows??
Tauresium near Skopje is the birthplace of Justinian I (483), so is the birthplace of the King Theodahad of the Ostrogoths and Italy (480).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tauresium
Balkan peninsula or the Roman province of Illyricum back then was entirely in the hands of the Goths since 387AD. Goths even had established a Kingdom in Macedonia with Pella as it's capital . They took over over the province by replacing the Roman garrisons , collecting the taxes and had control over the arms production . Even the garrison of Thessaloniki was Gothic .. Justinian was merciless with the Goths , yet Gothic , Slavic , Hunic , Issaurian and Moorish mercenaries made up most of his army in his campaigns against the Persians , Vandals and the Gothic Kingdom in Italy and Spain .
For the Hellenistic peoples of the eastern Mediterranean ,Persians were the major threat to be deal with , while Justinian's ambitions were to re-establish the Roman Empire and to regain lost territories of the western parts , a situation that produced numerous conflicts , therefore the political role of the Hellenistic peoples over the Imperial authority was strictly limited during his long reign . In other words Greeks weren't Justinian's favorite people at all :)
Btw , Justinian was born a pig-farmer .. He became an Emperor only through the ranks of the military :)

Ber Tejo, do names imply ethnicity?

hahahaha

Macedonians have named after Greek names ALL the cities they built or renamed.

As if they knew that, 25000 years later, a bunch of SlavoSkopian MALAKES would argue about their Greekness.

MALAKES !!
