ALEXANDER MINTED COINS OF LEAD FROM KRATOVO



National.


The bronze coins from the time of Alexander the Great Macedonian, which were unearthed at the archeological site, Isar-Marvinci, 7 km of Valandovo, are dating from the fourth century of the new era and they were minted with lead from the Kratovsko-Zletovskata region.

This was discovered last year by proffesors, Blazo Boev and Sonja Lepitkova from the Faculty of geology in Stip and Vladimir Bermanec of the Natural-Mathematic faculty in Zagreb, Croatia.

The ancient coins were researched in a laboritory in the German city of Darmstadt where the exact information was gathered of what they are made and where they come from. Sonja Lepitkova says that the research confirm that they coins are from the time of Alexander the Great and that they contain a big quantity of lead, besides bronze and zink. "The coins are from the fourth century before our era and were made of resources from the Kratovsko-Zletovskata vulkan area. We also analised some ancient helmets which we found and they were also made from resources in the Kratovo area.These findings confirm that ancient Macedonians did live in these regions and that Alexander the Great himself, used resources from the Kratovsko region to mint coins with his picture on them", Lepitkova says.

"We plan to use these methods also on artifacts we have found on other Macedonian archeological sites", Lepitkova added.

"For I (Alexander I) myself am by ancient descent a Greek, and I would not willingly see Hellas change her freedom for slavery." (Herod. IX, 45, 2 [Loeb])

We must remember too that Philip and Alexander WERE GREEKS, descended from Heracles;they wished to be recognized by the Greeks as benefactors of the Greeks, even as Heracles had been

N.G L Hammond [1989] “Alexander The Great” page.257

Philip was born a Greek of the most aristocratic, indeed of divine, descent… Philip was both a Greek and a Macedonian, even as Demosthenes was a Greek and an Athenian…The Macedonians over whom Philip was to rule were an outlying family member of the Greek-speaking peoples.


Nicholas G. L. Hammond, ‘Philip of Macedon’ Duckworth Publishing, February 1998

“To his ancestors (to a Persian’s ancestors) Macedonians were only known as ‘yona takabara’, the ‘Greeks who wear shields on their heads’, an allusion to their broad-brimmed hats” Page 104.

You athenians are in a panic, because the truth is being revealed about the ancient Macedonians. You can cut and paste ancient myths as much as you want, but only the truth will be believed.

It is impossible for christian turkish settlers to be related to ancient Macedonians. Get your own christian turkish history. Only Macedonians can be Macedonian!

Македонија за Македонците!

interview with Denko Malevski minister of foreign
affairs (Fyrom )

Denko Malevski was the first minister of foreign
affairs after the recognition of his countrys Fyrom independence 1991...




Malevski admits the truth:

as far as Alexander the Great and his place in
the history of the country
Malevski agnowledges that THIS IS THE RESULT
of Political PLANNING rather then Historical Tradition...
The idea that Alexander the Great belongs to
Fyrom was at the mind of SOME OUTSIDER GROUPS ONLY..

This Groups were insignificant in the first years
of our Independence....

But the big problem is that the old Balkan Nations
they have been used in to legitimise them selves through their History...
In the balkans to Recognised as A Nation
you need to Have A HISTORY of 2000 to 3000 years
old...
SINCE YOU MADE AS TO INVENT A HISTORY...
WE DID INVENT IT...

Don't call them by MY NAME

Don't call them by A GREEK NAME

Call them Vardaska

Once you were Bulgarians then Vardaskans,then Yugoslavians and now "Macedonians". Which ethnicity will it be next?

xaxaxaxa Slavs No connection with ancient Macedonians

ONLY THE GREEKS

Can we get a close-up shot of those coins? I'd like to read the inscriptions.

Let's see. We google Isar-Marvinci and what do we find? A Skopian site. The site of FYROM's Ministry of Culture. Of course.
http://www.culture.org.mk/eISARMARV1.HTM

And what do we read?

"On the hill Isar, at the village of Marvinci near the town of Valandovo, there is a community from the early antic period that belonged to the southern Macedonian area called Amphacsitida. The many layers of this community speak of permanence with no significant interruptions, where time managed to save the earliest traces of its existence.

The hill is 40 to 45 meters high and is located over the mouth of Anska River into Vardar. The Acropolis of the town was strengthened by defense bulwarks. Most of the architectural findings show the existence of profane living objects, while the last phase shows the possible existence of a ceramic workshop.

The construction method in the earlier primitive stages, is very different from the latest stages. According to the archeological findings, the town was first ruined in the 3rd century BC, in time of the Celtic invasion in 279 BC.

The excavated construction material shows the cultural and economic development of the town throughout centuries of its survival. In the 5th and 4th century BC, stock was imported from Corinth and Ionia, in Asia Minor. Ceramic from the Iron Age was found in the tombs and Greek amphorae from the classical and late Hellenic period. Apart from the imported ceramics from the big manufacturing centers, there are also local ceramic products with native tradition and often simulating Greek forms. During the Hellenic era, the connections with the neighboring leading cultural centers in Macedonia: Pela, Beroia, Amphipolis and Thessalonica were strengthened. Ceramic plastic, jewels and coins were made in the pattern of these developed centers.

The antic town on the Isar secured its economic development through agriculture, cattle raising and mining. The numerous mines in the region, as well as the pottery craft continued as a tradition in the Roman period.

D. Kareva

Conclusion: These two sentences kind of stick out: "In the 5th and 4th century BC, stock was imported from Corinth and Ionia, in Asia Minor. Ceramic from the Iron Age was found in the tombs and Greek amphorae from the classical and late Hellenic period."

Hmmm, they couldn't have been Greek, could they?

** The Swiss lawyer and Professor R.A. Reiss came to Macedonia (1918) as an intependent observer after an invitation from the greek state .This is a part of his report about the people in Macedonia

" I said that I would rather call your Bulgarophones , Macedonians. You call those people Bulgarophones, owing to their language which is similar to Bulgarian. But, is it Bulgarian?
Is it the same language spoken in Sofia? NO. Macedonian is just as similar to Serbian as it is to Bulgarian. I am not a linguist and I would not allow myself a personal judgment, but disinterested Balkanologists have asserted to me that Macedonian is more similar to Serbian than Bulgarian. It is possible that there are linguists who assert the opposite. But it is a fact that the Macedonian language is spoken neither in Sofia nor in Belgrade. It is an individual language, just as we have the Romansch in Switzerland, spoken in Grisons, apart from Italian. To my mind, the Macedonian can be called neither Bulgarian nor Serb,
but simply Macedonian. "

provinces grecques. Paris, 1918, pp. 6-7.

I love watching athenians squirm when new evidence is presented. They go straight for their cut-and-paste quotes which they haven't even researched themselves.

The land of athenia has changed it's tune so many times regarding us Macedonians, it cannot tell the difference between myth and fact. The athenian govt now finds itself backed into a corner.

Keep squirming you christian turkish settlers. And see you in court!

Pozdrav do site Makedonci,

Hey Greeks. No one takes land without a war. If greeks owned the macedonian land in the past then show me evidence the macedonians took it from them in war!
