Macedonia

Samothrace honours Lysimachus

Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum: 372 SAMOTHRACE HONOURS LYSIMACHOS Date: 301-281 B.C. . . . since king Lysimachos previously took every care on behalf of the temple and the city, and now when some men acted impiously towards the temple, and tried to carry off the offerings that had been set up by the kings and the other Greeks, and sought to burn down the sanctuary of the gods, and broke in by night with wicked and impious intentions, along with those who had sailed across during the night from Pythagoras, the king arrived in the region and handed over the prisoners to the city and sent them to the people, so that they might receive the punishment that they deserved; and in other ways he acted nobly and magnificently, taking the utmost care to show piety towards the gods; therefore with the good fortune of king Lysimachos and the city, it has been voted by the people, so that the city might show proper gratitude towards its benefactors, to set up an altar of king Lysimachos, as beautiful as possible, and the nine archons shall go there in procession and make sacrifice every year, while the citizens wear wreaths.  (Jan 4, 2015 | post #1)

Macedonia

It is as if the land of Macedonia herself is so disgusted...

That from the bosom of her own earth she almost daily shows her revulsion and brings forth the proof of their absurd fabrications to spite them... As if the recent discoveries of Amphipolis were not enough, another discovery in Macedonia dating to Mycenaean times: http://greece.gree kreporter.com/2014 /12/13/after-amphi polis-new-ancient- burial-ground-foun d-in-platamonas/ You do understand Mycenaean right? 2,600 years before your ancestors first crossed the Danube to invade our lands? Ans as if the great discoveries of Vergina in the 70's were not enough, more and more comes forth: http://greece.gree kreporter.com/2014 /11/12/new-alexand er-the-great-era-t omb-found-in-vergi na/ Poor fYRoMites. Time will bury you once and for all. 10, 50, 200 or 2,000 more years Macedonia herself will continue to bring forth more and more and more evidence that you are the greatest thieves and liars in almost of the history of mankind. Macedonia, 4,000, and counting, years of Greek history...  (Dec 17, 2014 | post #1)

Macedonia

Pyrrhus's own words or a deluded brick head Albanian...

Pyrrhus, among all these kindnesses of fortune, thinking what he had effected against the Gauls the most advantageous for his glory, hung up their richest and goodliest spoils in the temple of Minerva Itonis, with this inscription:- "Pyrrhus, descendant of Molossian kings, These shields to thee, Itonian goddess, brings, Won from the valiant Gaul when in the fight Antigonus and all his host took flight; 'Tis not to-day or yesterday alone That for brave deeds the Aeacidae are known." Plutarch, Life of Pyrrhus Descendant of the Greek Aeacidae...end of story...game, set, match.  (Oct 30, 2014 | post #1)

Don't try and change the subject from how stupid you truly are. Strabo: 9 1 There remain of Europe, first, Macedonia and the parts of Thrace that are contiguous to it and extend as far as Byzantium; secondly, Greece; and thirdly, the islands that are close by. Macedonia, of course, is a part of Greece, yet now, since I am following the nature and shape of the places geographically, I have decided to classify it apart from the rest of Greece and to join it with that part of Thrace which borders on it and extends as far as the mouth of the Euxine and the Propontis. Then, p329a little further on, Strabo mentions Cypsela and the Hebrus River, and also describes a sort of parallelogram in which the whole of Macedonia lies. Now, show me where the Illyrians are anywhere mentioned as Epirotes? None of your fake can't read properly crap either. Herodotus, way, way before Strabo: [127.] Italy was represented by two men: Smindyrides, the son of Hippocrates, who came from Sybaris, and who, at a time when the city stood at the very peak of its prosperity, lived a life of luxury such as no one had ever attained before; and Damasus, who came from Siris, and whose father was the Amyris whom people had nicknamed ‘the Wise’. Those were the suitors from Italy. Meanwhile, from the Ionian Gulf – or, to be more specific, from Epidamnus on the Ionian Gulf – came Amphimnestus, the son of Epistrophus. From Aetolia came Males, whose brother, Titormus, was the strongest man in Greece, but who had turned his back on human company by going to live in the remotest reaches of the Aetolian countryside. From the Peloponnese came Leocedes, whose father, Pheidon, had been the tyrant of Argos, and established the system of weights and measures used by the Peloponnesians; he had also, in a display of arrogance so overweening that no other Greek has ever matched it, given the Elean stewards of the Olympic games their marching orders, and presided over the games himself. There were other Peloponnesians too, as well as the son of Pheidon: Amiantus, the son of Lycurgus, an Arcadian from Trapezus; Laphanes, who was an Azanian from Paeus, and son of the Euphorion who once, according to the tale told in Arcadia, put up the Dioscuroi in his house, and from that moment on never refused any man his hospitality; and Onomastus, the son of Agaeus, who came from Elis. Then, alongside these suitors from the Peloponnese, there came two Athenians: Megacles, son of the Alcmaeon who had visited Croesus, and Hippocleides, who was the son of Tisander, and a man who for wealth and good looks had no superior in Athens. From Eretria, which at this time was highly flourishing, came Lysanias – but no one else from Euboea. Thessaly was represented by one of the Scopadae, Diactorides of Crannon, and the Molossians by Alcon. Epirotes and other Greeks but no Illyrians touvlo  (Oct 30, 2014 | post #35)

The sea that actually is on the coast of Illyria up by modern Croatia you M O R O N. Not even close to Greek Epirus T O U V L O. He didn't mistake Illyrians with Greeks and he didn't mistake Illyrians with Albanians (who?) because you weren't created yet bonehead.  (Oct 29, 2014 | post #31)

Albanian (who?) intelligence at its finest on display. I would call you a retard but I don't want to insult the mentally handicapped by bringing you up to their level. It is not fair to them to be labelled alongside a total blockhead like you. Let me help you with your dyslexia M O R O N . We read the passage in order, we don't cut out the parts we feel like: "The Adriatic stretches north and west; it is long and narrow, being in length about 6000 stadia, and its greatest breadth 1200. There are many islands situated here opposite the coasts of Illyria, such as the Absyrtides,20 Cyrictica,21 and the Libyrnides,22 also Issa,23 Tragurium,24 the Black Corcyra,25 and Pharos.26 Opposite to Italy are the Islands of Diomede.27 THE SEA OF SICILY is said to be 4500 stadia from Pachynus to Crete, and the same distance to Tænarus in Laconia.28 From the extremities of Iapygia to the bottom of the Gulf of Corinth the distance is less than 3000 stadia, while from Iapygia to Libya it is more than 4000. IN THIS SEA are the Islands of Corcyra29 and Sybota,30 opposite the coasts of Epirus; and beyond these, opposite the Gulf of Corinth, Cephallenia,31 Ithaca, Zacynth,32 and the Echinades.33" M O R O N it is a plain as daylight that Strabo has moved on to the SEA OF SICILY not the Illyrian Sea. Go seek help, or better yet keep demonstrating what a touvlo you are for everyone to laugh at.  (Oct 29, 2014 | post #28)

Hahahahaha. I can only laugh at how stupid some of the crap you post. Why didn't you finish the quote: "The Ionian Gulf forms part of what we now call the Adriatic.19 Illyria forms its right side, and Italy as far as the recess where Aquileia is situated, the left. The Adriatic stretches north and west; it is long and narrow, being in length about 6000 stadia, and its greatest breadth 1200. There are many islands situated here opposite the coasts of Illyria, such as the Absyrtides,20 Cyrictica,21 and the Libyrnides,22 also Issa,23 Tragurium,24 the Black Corcyra,25 and Pharos.26 Opposite to Italy are the Islands of Diomede.27 The Sea of Sicily is said to be 4500 stadia from Pachynus to Crete, and the same distance to Tænarus in Laconia.28 From the extremities of Iapygia to the bottom of the Gulf of Corinth the distance is less than 3000 stadia, while from Iapygia to Libya it is more than 4000. In this sea are the Islands of Corcyra29 and Sybota,30 opposite the coasts of Epirus; and beyond these, opposite the Gulf of Corinth, Cephallenia,31 Ithaca, Zacynth,32 and the Echinades.33" http://www.perseus .tufts.edu/hopper/ text?doc=Perseus%3 Atext%3A1999.01.02 39%3Abook%3D2%3Ach apter%3D5%3Asectio n%3D20#note25 Are you unable to see which islands are listed across from the "Illyrian Sea" and thus where Illyria is: http://www.hydriap roject.net/en/croa tia-faros1/setting 17/ It is not even close to Epirus you blockhead. Did you mistake Croatia for ancient Epirus you touvlo? Epirus is listed with the "Sea of Sicily" with, guess what no surprise, the Greek islands and Corinth. For that matter Epirus is listed completely separately from Illyria, as always. Thank you for yet againfor being the shining example of the Albanian(who?) intellect.  (Oct 29, 2014 | post #26)

No, I never said we should sit around and do nothing and the problem will just go away, and we are not doing that. We will veto their entry to the EU and NATO forever and don't let these zombies fool you, they desperately need to join. I also believe we should turn up the screws on them economically and basically get more aggressive and start to humiliate their ridiculous claims to the world even more. For example, there is a great Alexander the Great exhibit touring select museums of the world and that is a huge kseftilia for their pathetic delusions. I also believe it is time we start playing a more tactical diplomatic game within reason. Fine na poume, you want to recognize them as "Macedonia " then we should start playing that game more...let's see how many countries like it when we start recognizing some of their problems and all of the sudden it is in their interest to finally realize what the hell we have been saying all along about truth and justice. After all, the only reason other countries recognize them is path of least resistance and because they don't give a rat's ass since it does not involve their own core national issues and is seen as a petty dispute. And no, I did not say Greece never won a war. What I asked was a rhetorical question that in the last two hundred years how often was she successful on her own without the smart strategy of good alliances and strong international political support laid out, or at least eventually given? And when that wasn't the case (like Asia Minor where our "allies" basically back stabbed us), how disastrous was it? We are still feeling the repercussions. War is not the issue. Sometimes it is unfortunately necessary. But doing everything to maximize the success of it is the issue, and invading them is the WORST thing we could ever do. Don't worry about 20 or 40 years. Greece has been around 4,000 years and we will prevail in the end, time is on our side. I will be truly shocked if they don't implode within a couple of generations...  (Oct 29, 2014 | post #180)
