erhaps the Athenian contribution, from a cultural point of view, may be argued to have occupied a place of some importance in the administrative sector of the empire, the organizational, the military and the structural components of the Macedonian Empire must have been obtained, delivered and maintained strictly from Macedonian resources and for Macedonian interests.
The concept of an empire, an esoteric notion for the Athenians, was born with the first few initial successes of Alexander, and its meaning, magnitude, scope and structure grew as the string of victories and the success on the battlefields allowed Alexander to enlarge, coordinate and control huge land areas in Asia and Egypt. For almost 3 centuries after Alexander, it was his successors that carried the symbols and the name of the Macedonian Empire.
Thus, the very narrow strip of "Hellenism" that comes, as a residue, attached to the period in question, cannot, in any meaningful way, embrace and encompass the scope and the magnitude of an empire that was built, organized and maintained on the strength and the efficiency of the Macedonian army.
If Johann would be alive today to see what his fake history and the god father style of creating Greece has caused, I am certain he would have broken off his friendship to Prince Otto.

Among the fads Archestratus disdained was the use of overpowering sauces with herb pickles, which obscured the natural flavors of Mediterranean seafood but served well as a disguise for an inferior catch.

Against more casual timing of service, he insisted that skewers of meat should come immediately to table while guests were still drinking:

“[Meat] should be hot, simply sprinkled with salt, and taken from the spit while it is still a little undercooked. Do not let it distress you to see the divine ichor dripping from the meat, but eat it greedily. All other methods are mere sidelines to my mind, thick sauces poured over, cheese melted over, too much oil over—as if they were preparing a tasty dish of dogfish.”

During a period of culinary exchange between Roman cooks and Greek colonials in southern Italy and Sicily, the Roman poet Quintus Ennius reprised Archestratus’s text in Hedyphagetica (ca. 200 BCE).

" Mannheim, Germany - The head of a German museum which is set to show an exhibition about Alexander the Great weighed into a dispute between Skopje and Athens on Friday, saying the ancient leader had been predominantly Greek. The modern state of Macedonia, where the main language is a Slavic one, claims the heritage of ancient Macedonia.
"Alexander was predominantly Greek and definitely not an ancestor of contemporary Slavic Macedonians," said Alfried Wieczorek, head of the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums in the southern German city of Mannheim.
The exhibition devoted to the ancient general and ruler, who lived from 356 to 323 BC, opens on Saturday and runs till February 21.
For two decades, Athens has been objecting to its northern neighbour calling itself Macedonia. Skopje has named its airport after Alexander and insists on having Alexander's "star of Vergina" symbol on its coat of arms.
In an interview with the German Press Agency dpa, Wieczorek said, "The latest research shows very clearly yet again that the Macedonians in the days of Alexander were closely related to the contemporary Greeks."
He added, "In antiquity, Greeks and Macedonians could interact because they spoke the same language."
Athens has been insisting that the name Macedonia can only been applied to a province in its own north.
The country of Macedonia became independent in 1991 when Yugoslavia split up. The name issue has held up efforts to bring the new country into NATO and into formal assocation with the European Union.
The museum director referred to findings that its population of 2 million, one quarter of them Albanian speakers and three quarters Slavic speakers, are descended from people who immigrated in the 6th century of the modern era, long after Alexander's death. "
This article is the only truth of the name issue.
And it really hurts the Fyromian nationalists...

The theory that the Macedonians are Slavs who will conquer Macedonia and "liberate" it from its Greek inhabitants is not Nazi?
