Some anonymous users are vandalizing the page for political reasons. The vandalism is focused on Andriscus of Macedon's ancient identity: The original phrase: "... defeated Andriscus of Macedon, the last greek King of Macedon ..." sometimes is vandalized by people of FYROM and changes into the following phrase"... defeated Andriscus of Macedon, the last Macedonian King of Macedon ...".
