Example text

Throughout the Classical Age most ‘Greeks’ acknowledged a distinction between themselves and the Macedonians. When the Macedonian king Alexander I attempted to participate in the Olympic Games, the Greeks who were to run against him said that the contest was for Greeks and not for foreigners. Alexander convinced the Hellenodikai, the officials in charge, that he was descended from an Argive, and so was judged to be a Greek and competed in the foot race (Hdt. 22). Apparently as a Macedonian he would have been barred.

I. Hardiman in ‘Classical Art to 221 BC’ (chapter 24) ‘was part of the general artistic koinai of the age’. Indeed, Hardiman states that ‘the beginnings of Macedonia as a locus of Hellenic art and as a disseminator of this art may be the most “Macedonian” element of its “classical” period’. 60 D. Graninger, in ‘Macedonia and Thessaly’ (chapter 15), points out that ‘there were religious traditions common to both greater Thessaly and Macedonia’. However, P. C. Murray in ‘Macedonian Religion’ (chapter 21), while emphasizing the general Greek context of Macedonian religion, also point to aspects that set it apart.

Anson evidence is that (1) Macedonia was clearly part of a broader Greek cultural world at least by the fifth century, (2) whatever may be meant by the stray allusions to spoken ‘Macedonian’71 all surviving epigraphical evidence from grave markers to public inscriptions is in Greek, and (3) while the literary evidence into the fourth century suggests that the Greeks did not accept the Macedonians as brothers and there is virtually no evidence to garner the views of non-royal Macedonians, the Argead royal family, including both Philip II and Alexander III, believed themselves to be Greek and were accepted as such by most of the Greek world.
