Συζήτηση:Μακεδονία (αρχαίο βασίλειο)
Μακεδονικό κράτος; Δεν υφίσταται έννοια του κράτους για την περίοδο που μιλάμε--The Elder 15:44, 11 Ιουνίου 2009 (UTC)
- Σωστή η παρατήρηση. Αφήνω τον ορισμό ως έχει για την περίοδο από τον Φίλιππο Β' και μετά, όπου οι δομές είναι αρκετά συγκεντρωτικές ωστε να μπορεί να χαρακτηριστεί κράτος (για τα δεδομένα της κλασσικής αρχαιότητας, πάντα).--Dipa1965 18:22, 11 Ιουνίου 2009 (UTC)
- Αν εννούσες τη φράση μου "απίθανο να υπάρχουν στοιχεία για μακεδονικό κράτος τον 12ο αι", αυτή ειπώθηκε από κεκτημένη ταχύτητα. Φυσικά και εννοούσα ένα (έστω και υποτυπώδες) βασίλειο. Η χρονολόγηση της απαρχής του μακεδονικού βασιλείου στο 12ο αι. π.Χ. είναι που ενδιαφέρει. Και δεν υπάρχουν στοιχεία για τέτοια χρονολόγηση, εκτός φυσικά αν "χρονολογήσει" κανείς τα υποτιθέμενα "κύματα" των εισβολέων του τέλους της μυκηναϊκής εποχής σε συνδυασμό με την υποτιθέμενη σύνδεση των Αργεαδών με τους Δωριείς του νότου και τα θεωρήσει υπεύθυνα για το τέλος του μυκηναϊκού κόσμου. Εντελώς ξεπερασμένες θεωρίες δηλαδή. --Dipa1965 18:42, 11 Ιουνίου 2009 (UTC)
Όχι σε αυτό έχεις δίκιο. Εικασίες διαθέτουμε, τίποτα που να στηρίζεται από αρχαιολογικά ευρήματα. Για την έννοια του κράτους μιλώ, που είναι άγνωστη στη συγκεκριμένη περίοδο. Γενικώς η έννοια κράτος στον αρχαίο κόσμο χρησιμοποιείται με πολύ φειδώ γιατί ουσιαστικά καθιερώθηκε στον και για τον σύγχρονο κόσμο --The Elder 18:56, 11 Ιουνίου 2009 (UTC)
- Σωστά, το σύγχρονο συγκεντρωτικό εθνικό κράτος με τους επιβεβλημένους σε όλους τους πολίτες θεσμούς του απέχει πολύ από τα κράτη της προ-βιομηχανικής ή, μάλλον καλύτερα, προ-νεωτερικής (;) (pre-modern) εποχής. Αλλά λέμε πχ πόλη-κράτος (city-state) και διάφορα άλλα. Οι αναπόφευκτοι συμβιβασμοί με την αναχρονιστική μεν αλλά παγιωμένη ορολογία, υποθέτω (δεν είμαι και ειδικός). --Dipa1965 20:11, 11 Ιουνίου 2009 (UTC)
Η υπηκοοτητα του Αντίπατρου Ετησία ήταν Ελληνική όπως και όλων των μακεδόνων !!! Παρακαλώ διορθώστε το . Αναφορά: 2A02:587:2503:B600:282F:EE1B:B7EF:74BD 13:29, 22 Φεβρουαρίου 2016 (UTC)

3. History of the Peloponnesian War, Book 2, Chapter 99: "The country on the sea coast, now called Macedonia, was first acquired by Alexander, the father of Perdiccas, and his ancestors, originally Temenids from Argos. This was effected by the expulsion from Pieria of the Pierians, who afterwards inhabited Phagres and other places under Mount Pangaeus, beyond the Strymon; of the Bottiaeans, at present neighbours of the Chalcidians, from Bottia, and by the acquisition in Paeonia of a narrow strip along the river Axius extending to Pella and the sea"
Herodotus (c. 484 BC – c. 425 BC)
4. The Histories, Book 1, Chapter 56, Lines 7 - 15: "These races, Ionian and Dorian, were the foremost in ancient time, the first (Ionians) a Pelasgian and the second (Dorians) a Hellenic people. The Pelasgian race has never yet left its home; the Hellenic (Dorians) has wandered often and far. For in the days of king Deucalion it inhabited the land of Phthia, then the country called Histiaean, under Ossa and Olympus, in the time of Dorus son of Hellen; driven from this Histiaean country by the Cadmeans, it (the Hellenic people) settled about Pindus in the territory called Macedonian; from there again it migrated to Dryopia, and at last came from Dryopia into the Peloponnese, where it (Hellenic people) took the name of Dorian"
5. The Histories, Book 8, Chapter 43, Lines 3 - 6: "...the Sicyonians furnished fifteen ships, the Epidaurians ten, the Troezenians five, the Hermioneans three. All of these except the Hermioneans are Dorian and Macedonian and had last come from Erineus and Pindus and the Dryopian region..."

9. Strabo, Geographica, Book 7, Chapter 7, Section 4: "The Aegean sea washes Greece on two sides: first, the side that faces towards the east and stretches from Sunium, towards the north as far as the Thermaean Gulf and Thessaloniceia..."
11. Plutarch, Moralia, Chapter 1, Section 10: "...the blessings of Greek justice and peace over every nation, I should not be content to sit quietly in the luxury of idle power, but I should emulate the frugality of Diogenes. But as things are, forgive me, Diogenes, that I imitate Heracles, and emulate Perseus, and follow in the footsteps of Dionysus,8the divine author and progenitor of my family and desire that victorious Greeks should dance again in India and revive the memory of the Bacchic revels among the savage mountain tribes beyond the Caucasus. Even there it is said that there are certain holy men, a law unto themselves, who follow a rigid gymnosophy10 and give all their time to God"
12. Plutarch, Parallel Lives, Alexander, Chapter 37, Section 4: "And it is said that when he took his seat for the first time under the golden canopy on the royal throne, Demaratus the Corinthian, a well-meaning man and a friend of Alexander's, as he had been of Alexander's father, burst into tears, as old men will, and declared that those Hellenes were deprived of great pleasure who had died before seeing Alexander seated on the throne of Dareius"
13. Plutarch, Parallel Lives, Alexander, Chapter 17, Section 2: "Now, there is in Lycia, near the city of Xanthus, a spring, which at this time, as we are told, was of its own motion upheaved from its depths, and overflowed, and cast forth a bronze tablet bearing the prints of ancient letters, in which it was made known that the empire of the Persians would one day be destroyed by the Greeks and come to an end"
14. Arrian, The Anabasis of Alexander, Book 1, Chapter 12, Section 4, Line 3: "There is no other man amongst the Greeks or the barbarians who has shown so many or so great achievements than Alexander"

16. Arrian, The Anabasis of Alexander, Book 7, Chapter 16, Section 1: "After that, Alexander sent Heraclides the son of Argaeus to Hyrcania and ordered him to cut woods from the mountains and built warships according to the Greek shipbuilding"
18. Polybius, Histories, Book 7, Chapter 9, Section 3: "in the presence of all Gods who possess Macedonia and the rest of Greece in the presence of all the gods of the army who preside over this oath"
19. Arrian, The Anabasis of Alexander, Book 4, Chapter 11, Section 7: "οὔκουν οὐδὲ αὐτῷ τῷ Ἡρακλεῖ ζῶντι ἔτι θεῖαι τιμαὶ παρ᾽ Ἑλλήνων ἐγένοντο, ἀλλ᾽ οὐδὲ τελευτήσαντι πρόσθεν ἤ πρὸς τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἐν Δελφοῖς ἐπιθεσπισθῆναι ὡς θεὸν τιμᾶν Ἡρακλέα. εἰ δέ, ὅτι ἐν τῇ βαρβάρῳ γῇ οἱ λόγοι γίγνονται, βαρβαρικὰ χρὴ ἔχειν τὰ φρονήματα, καὶ ἐγὼ τῆς Ἑλλάδος μεμνῆσθαί σε ἀξιῶ, ὦ Αλέξανδρε, ἧς ἕνεκα ὁ πᾶς στόλος σοι ἐγένετο, προσθεῖναι τὴν Ἀσίαν τῇ Ἑλλάδι
25. "...for the first time he (Phillip) started to understand how Macedonia's outdated institutions of feudalism an aristocratic monarchy so despised by the rest of Greece"
26. "Such a glorious ancestry was in the eyes of Greeks the hallmark of the Hellenic persona of the king of Macedon, who could, on the other hand, rely on fidelity of the people from which he had sprung. The Greek cities did not feel that they were allying with a barbarian, since for generations the Macedonian dynasty had been allowed, as Greeks, to take part in the Olympic Games.
27. "The Macedonians were Greeks. Their language was Greek, to judge by their personal names and by the names of the months of the calendar; Macedonian ambassadors could appear before the Athenian assembly without needing interpreters; in all Demosthenes' sneers about their civilization there is no hint that Macedonians spoke other than Greek" ("Philip of Macedon", Faber & Faber, London, 1978, p. 22)
28. "Philip II, at least from the time of his victory over Phocis, Athens, and their allies in 346, prepared to proclaim himself the champion of a United Greece against the barbarians"
29. "...the Macedonians, our conviction is strengthened that they were a Greek race and akin to the Dorians. Having stayed behind in the extreme north, they were unable to participate in the progressive civilization of the tribes which went further south..."

31. "...King Philip of the northern Greek kingdom of Macedon perfected this system, and his son, Alexander the Great..."
32. "The idea of the city-state was first challenged by the ideal of pan-Hellenic unity supported by some writers and orators, among which the Athenian Isocrates became a leading proponent with his Panegyrics of 380 suggesting a Greek holy war against Persia. However, only the rise of Macedonia made the realization of panHellenic unity possible..."
33. "The king [of macedon] was chief in the first instance of a race of plain-dwellers, who held themselves to be, like him, of Hellenic stock"
34. "Macedonia (or Macedon) was an ancient, somewhat backward kingdom in northern Greece. Its emergence as a Hellenic (Greek) power was due to a resourceful king, Philip II (359-336), whose career has been unjustly overshadowed by the deeds of his son, Alexander the Great"
35. "Soon after Athens had reached the height of its glory under Pericles in the Fifth Century, B. C., and had started on its decline, the rise of Macedon under Philip carried Greek influence into new regions. The glory of Athens had been based upon sea power, but the conquests of Macedon were the work of land armies— Philip invented the invincible phalanx. Upon Philip's death his son, Alexander the Great, set forth to conquer the whole of the then known world, and as that world in his day lay to the east, his marches were in that direction. In a few years he had overrun the fertile plains and opulent cities of Asia Minor, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia, and had carried his conquests to the gates of Delhi. In all the cities in the intervening countries he left large garrisons of Greek soldiers. In many of these countries he founded flourishing new cities. In every place his soldiers were followed by large colonies of Greek civilians. The result was that the whole of western Asia, and of what we call the Near East, including Asia Minor Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Babylonia, Mesopotamia, Persia, and northwestern India, was saturated with the Greek influence and with Greek colonies"
37. "From a historical point of view the term Macedonia had no clear ethnic meaning (it is because of thousands of years of mixing of various tribes and peoples), although it is clear that in ancient times Macedonia was considered a Greek state and Macedonians [were] Greeks living in Macedonia...".
38. "When Athens falls, when spreading of Greeks beyond the area of Greece starts, as many know, after the conquests of Alexander of Macedonia, new Greek states are established and Egypt becomes the main centre of Greek civilization, with the centre in Alexandria. Greeks winning over Asia, that is the main idea of Alexander"
39. "...Certain proto-populations occupying distinct areas of the Balkans could be distinguished on the territories of the cultural groups: in western part of the Balkans the proto-Illyrians, in the east the proto Thracians, in the south the Hellenes (i.e: Greeks), in the northern part of the Balkans the proto Daco-Mysians and in the southwest of the Central Balkans the proto Bryges"
40. "Paeonians, a people who during the first millennium BC inhabited the border area between the three great Paleobalkanic peoples - Illyrians, Thracians and Hellenes. (i.e:Greeks)"
41. "Philip V (220-178 BCE), carried a struggle against Romans trying to halt their penetration into Balkans, but he was defeated in the battle of Cynoscephalae, after which he was forced to renounce all Greek lands, with the exception of Macedonia..."
42. "Greek epigraphic monuments created before definitive Roman domination of our area are to be found in modest quantity"
