Alexander the Great

Athens, Greece

#1 Jan 29, 2013
"Tell your king (Xerxes), who sent you, how his Greek viceroy (Alexander I) of Macedonia has received you hospitably." (Herod. V, 20, 4 [Loeb])

"Now, that these descendants of Perdiccas are Greeks, as they themselves say, I myself chance to know." (Herod. V, 22, 1 [Loeb])

The country by the sea which is now called Macedonia... Alexander, the father of Perdiccas, and his forefathers, who were originally Temenidae from Argos"
(Thucydides 99,3 (Loeb, C F Smith)

"But Alexander (I), proving himself to be an Argive, was judged to be a Greek;
so he contended in the furlong race and ran a dead heat for first place."
(Herod. V, 22, 2)

The speech of Alexander I, when he was admitted to the Olympic games "Men of Athens...
Had I not greatly at heart the common welfare of Hellas I should not have come to tell you; but I am myself Hellene by descent, and I would not willingly see Hellas exchange freedom for slavery....
If you prosper in this war, forget not to do something for my freedom; consider the risk I have run, out of zeal for the Hellenic cause, to acquaint you with what Mardonius intends, and to save you from being surprised by the barbarians.
I am Alexander of Macedon."
(Herodotus, The Histories, 9.45)

"For As Hellenes (GREEKS) we should not be slaves to barbarians."
Callisthenes of Olynthus 1.15.1-4>
(Note that Callisthenes was a historian in the battlefields next to Alexander the Great)

“Alexander came by the statue of his father and spoke loud:`Youths of the Pellaians and of the Macedonians and of the Hellenic Amphictiony and of the Lakedaimonians and of the Corinthians… and of all the Hellenic peoples, join your fellow-soldiers and entrust yourselves to me, so that we can move against the barbarians and liberate ourselves from the Persian bondage, for AS Hellenes WE should not be slaves to barbarians.”
>

"And when the book of Daniel was showed to Alexander the Great, Daniel declared that one of the Greeks should destroy the empire of the Persians, he supposed that himself was the person intended"
Flavious Josephus (11.8.5)

Herodotus V, 22, 1 (Loeb, A.D. Godley)

"Macedonia is also a part of Greece" Stravon(Great geographer 63 B.C.- 23 A.D.)

"The Macedonian people and their kings were of Greek stock, as their traditions and scanty remains of their language combine to testify" (John Bagndell Bury: "A History of Greece to the Deat of Alexander the Great", 2nd ed(1913))

"How great are the dangers I face to win a good name in Athens". "If I were not Alexander I would be Diogenes" (Alexander the Great)

These are a few ancient & old quotes I have found of the many that there are. If any of you are interested in any modern stuff such as university videos, encyclopedias, etc. or any other kind of legit proof you would like to have let me know.

Demosthenes
Greek Orator
"... not only no Greek, nor related to the Greeks, but not even a barbarian from any place that can be named with honors, but a pestilent knave from Macedonia, whence it was never yet possible to buy a decent slave" - Demosthenes, Third Philippic, 31. The famous words that this Greek orator from Athens used to describe the Macedonian king Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great, prior to Philip’s conquest of Greece

Lol nice try. So Alexander the Great was a slav? Give me a break man. I have at least 5 videos right now saved in my favorites bar, from top historians from top-world universities such as Yale and Stanford stating that Macedonians were Greeks in every aspect such as ethnicity, language, customs, religion etc and indeed very proud of it. In my over 1 years of viewing this thread, all i have every seen from you FYROMians is the king Otto saying where the Greeks are in Athens. Nothing else. Everything else you have written is calling us gypsies and saying you are Macedonians with absolutely no proof whatsoever. But I can easily prove that Greeks are pure:) You're hopeless man. I could probably say millions of things about how Greek Macedonians were. Let's start with the fastest. The very words, Macedonia, Alexander, and Phillip all have Greek meanings. Please explain what they mean in your language.

Not to mention the countless encyclopedia articles I have about Alexander the Great and ancient Macedonia which prove that they were both as Greek as any other city state.

Lol what kind of maniac puts spam and nuts to my comments? I only wrote 2 comments and i saw them rising from 1 to 4!!! Does this tiny fraction of legit proof i have about Macedonians and Alexander the Great being 100% Greek disturb you Skops that much? Well that makes me feel happy then seeing you steam up like vegetables right now. But disliking my comment from ancient quotes doesn't make it non-existant or fake.

Open your eyes man. The fact that your country's name has been widely recognised as Macedonia doesn't change anything. Stealing a name from another country's region is very possible and has been done many times in the past but trying to steal history is just the most impossible thing you could ever try. And that's the exact reason why no one believes the nonsense you say apart from you. You are slavs that came 1500 years to the balkans after Alexander the Great, started calling yourselves Macedonians in the 1940's, and had an independant state for the first time ever after you left Yugoslavia in the 90's for the first time. Simple as that. Im not even gonna mention why Macedonians are 100% Greeks because i would be talking for months.

Samos the independant partizan seagypsy fisherman, you cannot take back what belongs to us. We are antic Macedons. I know this because I am a time traveler and I usually visit the Year 323BC every Thursday.

Now go and mend your fishing nets.

And Demosten was a slave to Atenian elite, who stole his father's land and Demosten's inheritance.
Thos Elit Atenians who fought among themself.
No wonder Filip of Makedon was considered as wild man by Elas, who were behaving worst to their slaves.
Demosten fury against Macedonians was but a disapointment to the Elas sistem of slavery he could not manage. At same time Elas spoke in diferent languages. Thats why all that mess, demosten had to endure. And thats not all.
In Demosten's wikipedia, ha,ha, apeared Greek states.
What a place to sow a seed of deseption.

"While Demosthenes was still in exile,
Alexander died in Babylon, and the Greek
states combined yet again to form a league
against Macedon. Demosthenes attached
himself to the Athenian convoys, and threw
all his energies into helping them incite the
various states to attack the Macedonians
and drive them out of Greece."
[Plutarch p.212]
all ancient Historians say Macedonia was not
greece!
Greks are Afro/semitic gypsies who came in
the Balkans!
Macedonians were Native Europeans!:
