Pythian Games at Delphi in 346 B.C. In other words, Alexander the Great‟s father and his ancestors were thoroughly Greek." This is another unsuccessful attempt to "prove" that which can not be proven. Philip II joined in the Greek games after he had conquered large tracks of Greek possesions (Amphipolis, Potidaea, Crenides and others). He was appointed to manage the Pythian Games, not because he was "Greek", but by virtue of his conquests of Greek territory. His status as "conqueror" conferred on him a freedom to do as he wished. No Greek was in position to stop him, neithr then, nor later. Below we will show further data that clearly demonstrate that the Greeks considered Philip II a “barbarian” (non-Greek, i.e. a man who does not speak Greek). We are convinced that this evidence is more compelling than the unsubstantiated assertions contained in the signatories‟ letter. In the same paragraph, the signatories posit the term “ancient Greece”. That term demands explanation and clarification. Precisely which nation state and territory constitutes “ancient Greece”? All available evidence indicates that no such country ever existed. All that ever existed on the territory of today‟s Greece were smaller city-states which were constantly at war with each other. To use the artificial and contrived term “ancient Greece” in support of an argument that would deny an entire nation its identity is to place scholarship completely at the service of the propaganda agenda of the modern Greek state which seeks to convince the world that today‟s Greece is a continuation of “ancient Greece.” Lost in this manufactured history is the fact that today‟s Greeks are an ethnic amalgam of different nationalities and the fact that a country named “Greece”, i.e. “ancient Greece” never existed.
