Good sources.

Thracian, Illyrian, Macedonian - all cut from the same cloth. The areas where Justinian and Belisarius originate have been considered all of the above on various occasions. I am of the opinion that these two figures were of a people that spoke a language akin to the Slavic tongue along and north of the Danube, from where the Slavic tribes attacked and invaded the East Roman emperor. The 'Dardanian' area spoken of falls within the territory of the Macedonian Republic and ethnic Macedonian regions.
