    You’re very wrong what you’re doing with FYROM in this article, you’re changing the history. Macedonia was not a Slav tribe. The Macedonians were a Greek tribe in the North part of Greece. So you imply that Slavs conquered Greece and then conquered Persia? Are you getting crazy? This is nonsense, a craziness.

    Macedonia never conquered Greece in the context that this loaded question implies. Macedonia united Greece (Hellas), under Macedonian Hegemony and together they conquered Persia.

    Quote: It is difficult to imagine that Philip II’s policy toward Greece was an end in itself. Once his Balkan borders had been secured his general course seems to have been directed toward the establishment of stability in Greece, NOT CONQUEST.

    Chill, dude! It’s not Slavorum’s fault people use “Macedonia” both for the modern Slavic republic and for the ancient Hellenic Kingdom of Macedon. Just like how modern Greece doesn’t have city-states, but that’s still its top search entry on that map.

    This is not Hellenorum, but Slavorum. I don’t think anyone is interested too much in Greece, no offense 😉
