Isn't it interesting how far Macedonia extended in Strabo's time. I find it interesting how he calls north of the Danube - Thrace. More intersting how the people here go by various names Scythians, Getae, Goths, and yet they speak the same langauge as the Thracians and have the same customs as the Macedonians. Later the same people are called Sclaveni.
