heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Classic Archaeology & Ancient History of Macedonia at the International Hellenic University. The aim of the proposed thesis is to examine the history of ancient Macedonia and the early Temenid Kings. The main focus of this paper will be on the Macedonian King Alexander I in the Histories of Herodotus. As it is common knowledge Herodotus is one of the most important historians and there is n o doubt why Cicero called him the father of History. Herodotus’ work “Histories” which is a record of his "inquiry" describes many issues concerning the Greco - Persian wars, including a wealth of geographical and ethnographical information. It is crucial to underline the fact that he was the first historian who tried to treat historical subjects as a method of investigation. Moreover, the Histories of Herodotus are thought to be the most significant and contemporary source that informs us about Alexander I and about the early history of Macedonia. In the following chapters I will try to shed light on various aspects concerning the relations of the early Macedonian Kingdom with the Persians and with the northern Greeks as well, the personality and the role of Alexander as King of Macedonia, Alexander I’s activities during the Persian wars, the status quo of Macedonia during the Persian occupation and the role of Macedonia during the period after the Persian withdrawal. In order to present these aspects, all available sources will be taken into consideration. The source s that will be studied are ancient literary sources, such as Herodotus who is the main and basic source concerning the history of early Macedonia and modern bibliography is examined too . Furthermore archaeological and coinage evidence will be also taken in to consideration as a really helpful tool.
