Modern Greece built on myth, thats a FACT.

German magazine showed an image of Aphrodite of Milo gesturing crudely with the headline: "The fraudster in the euro family." In the article, modern Greeks were described as indolent sloths, cheats and liars, masters of corruption, unworthy descendents of their glorious Hellenic past.

The irony was that modern Greece has little in common with Pericles or Plato. If anything, it is a failed German project.

As R.L.Fox has explained long ago:

"If men from Oropos-Graia were among the early visitors to Capua or Veii and even early Rome, we can better understand an age-old puzzle: why "Greeks" were called "Greeks" in the Latin West."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graea

There are various etymologies of the name.The most common is the connection with the adjective graia "old woman", derived from the PIE root *gere, "to grow old ",

Another possibility is the relation with a word for "gray".

---

So, that wasn't their name at all in the first place, nor the place or a country or a nation - this was the name of a small group from 'Graia'(a small maybe invented place) or they were simply 'Gray'(Refugees)---> NOT "GREEX" AS THOUGHT.

SAME AS the "Indians" of Nord America who weren't Indians at all, since that wasn't the India as previously thought.

"... Western travelers knew little, Turkish authorities cared less. Even the polyglot Vlachs themselves neither knew nor cared a great deal and until the rise of national consciousness at the end of the nineteenth century were probably happy with the label of "Greek" which was good enough for outside observers,"

One more thing to know ,in FYROM dont teach you history ,ask a sicilian or south italian ,will tell the land bellow napoli was greek ,by the name Magna Grecia if you study Latin means Great Greece.was collony of Athens and sparta ,they fought the 30 years who will own that land ,Athens lost.any way the Romans learn from the Greeks the alfabet ,built cities and have an army ,they were all Farmers no threat to collony until 2th century BC.Free lessons here ,tell risto stevof i can teach him ,from were his ancesters came from .dont google ask me for the truth you history department in Skopia needs to close down ,too many lies .Read Greek history books are from eyewitness not bullshitters as your books.I think im done from now/.Be nice there is a mechanize battalion by Florina 5 milles from your borders before you sneeze ,they will be in Skopia main plaza ,take down Alexanders statue.

----------

This is the third time I catch you swearing and making fun of Arabs by calling them monkeys. Why do Turks hate the Arabs?
I thought they were your brothers.
I am sure you are confused.
It must be the weather.

There you go again with your hate theories, what makes you think the very mention of Arabs, monkeys or Greek baboons is interpreted as hatred ,
your use of the hate word comes very natural to you, your mind is infested with hatred,
If you believe in logic then you should know that human race did evolve from the apes, hence Greek baboons, it's a known facts derived from scientific research.
