StoPPeRmobile: JasonOfOrillia: I have this idea that the Macedonians were rubes at best, barbarians at worst, for all their Hellenistic pretensions. I heard one definition of 'Barbarian' as someone whose culture doesn't survive contact with civilization and when Alexander the Great conquered Persia he, apparently, began assuming the trappings of the Persians. The implication is that the Hellenistic culture to which he and his Macedonians pretended was weaker than Persian culture that they rolled over.Anyways, don't judge me too harshly, I'm three pints in.Oh look, this again.You sound like you are from a broke country.
