Peter Green - Classical Bearings p.157
"All Herodotus in fact says is that Alexander
himself demonstrated his Argive ancestry (in
itself a highly dubious genealogical claim),
and was thus adjudged a Greek---against
angry opposition, be it noted, from the
stewards of the Games Even if, with
professor N.G.L. Hammond, we accept this
ethnic certification at face value, it tells us, as
he makes plain, nothing whatsoever about
Macedonians generally. Alexander's dynasty,
if Greek, he writes, regarded itself as
Macedonian only by right of rule, as a
branch of the Hanoverian house has come
to 'regard itself as English'. On top of which,
Philip II's son Alexander had an Epirote
mother, which compounds the problem
from yet another ethnic angle."
[3] Ernst Badian - Studies in the History of
Art Vol 10: Macedonia and Greece in Late
Classical Early Hellenistic Times:
"We have no way of judging the authenticity
of either the claim or the evidence that went
with it, but it is clear that at the time the
decision was not easy. There were outraged
protests from the other competitors, who
rejected Alexander I as a barbarian--which
proves, at least, that the Temenid descent
and the royal genealogy had hitherto
been an isoteric item of knowledge.
However, the Hellanodikai decided to accept
it--whether moved by the evidence or by
political considerations, we again cannot tell.
In view of the time and circumstances in
which the claim first appears and the
objections it encountered, modern scholars
have often suspected that it was largely
spun out of fortuitous resemblance of the
name of the Argead clan to city of Argos;
with this given, the descent (of course)
could not be less than royal, i.e., Temenid."
Badian, like Borza, believes that Alexander I
"invented the story (in its details a common
type of myth) of how he had fought against
his father's Persian connection by having
the Persian ambassadors murdered, and
that it was only in order to hush this up and
save the royal family's lives that the marriage
of his sister to a Persian had been
arranged."
Badian sums it up:"As a matter of fact,
there is reason to think that at least some
even among Alexander I's friends and
supporters had regarded the Olympic
decision as political rather than factual--as
a reward for services to the Hellenic cause
rather than as prompted by genuine belief
in the evidence he had adduced. We find
him described in the lexicographers, who
go back to fourth-century sources, as
"Philhellene",--sure ly not an appellation
that could be given to an actual Greek."

greek belong in africa

genetic study.

Greeks seem to share genetic HLA features
(Chr 6) with Sub-Saharans. The relatedness
of Greeks to Sub-Saharans has been
confirmed by other studies based on
chromosome 7 genetic markers.
