Okay, I don't know (or don't remember, having read it before) when the province of Macedonia was divided into Macedonia Prima and Macedonia Salutaris. Internet sources say anywhere from the 3rd Century AD, the Fourth Century AD, or the Fifth Century AD. And Macedonia Salutaris seems to have been reorganized and renamed Macedonia Secunda at some (later) point. ---Alexander 007 11:44, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

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 ...". The fact is that the original phrase is neutral and already describes him as a Macedonian (phrase: Andriscus of Macedon, King of Macedonians), while the vandalized version uses the word "Macedonian" 3 times repeately (Andriscus of Macedon, Macedonian King of Macedon), is a tactic with hidden political aspects (by giving him modern ethnic-Macedonian identity). Historically, the modern day Ethnic-Macedonian (Slav Macedonian) identity is absolutely separated and different than the identity of the ancient Macedonians, who where a Greek tribe, like ancient Spartans, ancient Epirots, ancient Corinthians, ancient Athenians, ancient Laecedemonians, etc.
