Has izmir ever been called Symirna ?

You are not only ignorant but confused as well. How many times do I have to tell you that when the letters AION are used at the end of a Greek word it AUTOMATICALLY means 'OF THE'. If it is a city it AUTOMATICALLY refers to the people OF THE city. If it is a name it AUTOMATICALLY refers to the members OF THE name's family. In your example of Heraion it AUTOMATICALLY refers to the belongings OF THE temple of Hera. What do your English and Turkish examples have to do with this?Nothing! I am referring to 'AION' which is very specific for the Greek language and it means 'OF THE'. It implies PEOPLE if it is referring to a city, it implies MEMBERS if it is referring to a family name, and in your example of HERAION which is a Temple devoted to a goddess it implies the BELONGINGS of the temple. Is it clear now? You should learn Greek and discover the hidden beauties of this language.  (Monday | post #39)

Like I said, you are illiterate. If you had even the slightest sense of grammar you would know that the ending 'AION' by itself implies 'of the people' when it is added as an ending to a town,place, city, country or name . For example ATHINAION means of the people of Athens. THESSALONIKAION means of the people of Thessaloniki. PAPADOPOULAION means of the family of Papadopoulos. As for IONIA it is the whole of the Aegean coast of Asia Minor. Smyrna is just a city, a part of Ionia. You see now how you make a fool of yourself? Do some research before you post bullshit!  (Sunday | post #36)

You illiterate donkey, it says ZMYRNAION which is Greek for 'OF THE PEOPLE OF SMYRNA'. The letters 'AION' at the end of any noun makes it 'of the'. But then again how would an imbecile like you know that?  (Sunday Apr 20 | post #24)

Macedonia

Why is it called 'good friday'

I don't know what you're getting at or why you're bringing the matter up but KREMATAI EPI XYLOY does not necessarily mean to be hung from a tree. KREMATAI , like today can also mean just to hang from a wall or from anything really, for example we say "kremasa to palto mou" or "kremasa tin fotografia". So the phrase KREMATAI EPI XYLOY can literally mean "hanging from a wooden cross". But does it really matter? The point is he died for our sins, whether it was from hanging from a tree or whether it was crucifixion is insignificant for a true Chtistian.  (Sunday Apr 20 | post #33)

Macedonia

I always though USA is democratic

Show me one Greek map that says Northern Territory before 1991. I'll show you many Greek maps before 1991 that say MACEDONIA as the northern province of Greece.  (Saturday Apr 19 | post #30)

Like I expected, you're making things up on the way "Some Roman prefix said". Base your wordings on evidence, not on what you think.  (Friday Apr 18 | post #12)

Can you be more specific and quote from the Bible exactly where Jesus just pissed off some Elite you did not want to free their slaves? And where he spoke off freedom from slavery? If you can't then these are words you just made up.  (Friday Apr 18 | post #9)

QUOTE who="Maco Style"]<qu oted text>We'll confess your sins. I know you have many ... ;) You can first start off by admitting that Macedonians were not Greeks Thanks in advance[/QUOTE] What's it called in FYROMian language? 'Great' or 'Good'? Whatever you call it it's just one more thing you copied from Greece. Have you ever sat down to consider and think how much Greece has offered to your country? Start with your written language and your religion. Even today Greece is gracious enough to allow you to use the name 'Macedonia' with a qualifier to distinguish yourselves from the true Macedonians.  (Friday Apr 18 | post #7)

2,700 year-old SHOPPING MALL discovered in Greece

You're discussing on a thread that's commenting on a 2700 year old Greek finding, so you are jealous.  (Friday Apr 18 | post #9)

It's ok to be jealous. Comparing 5000 years of Hellenism to only 23 years of a place called FYROM is hard to bear.  (Friday Apr 18 | post #6)

Macedonia

Why is it called 'good friday'

Actually the Greek Orthodox wording is 'Megali Paraskeui' or 'Great Friday'. Got lost somewhere in translation and ended up 'Good Friday' in the English language. Anyways it's called 'Great' or 'Good' because Christ was crucified for our sins'  (Friday Apr 18 | post #3)

Ukraine crisis: 1 dead, 5 wounded in 'anti-terrorist' ope...

Well with your reasoning Mr Serb then the Albanians of Kosovo had every right to do what they did since they were the majority within a Serbian province. I myself do not recognize Kosovo, but with your logic I should.  (Tuesday Apr 15 | post #28)

More like the Albania should follow the footsteps of Russia and take over the western part of FYROM.  (Saturday Mar 29 | post #680)

http://en.m.wikipe dia.org/wiki/Pella In antiquity, Pella was a port connected to the Thermaic Gulf by a navigable inlet, but the harbor has silted, leaving the site landlocked. The reign of Antigonus likely represented the height of the city, as this is the period which has left us the most archaeological remains.  (Friday Mar 28 | post #664)
