Why don't you find out what she relies on to prove this. Would it be religious affiliation?

I'm sure some Greeks were around if that helps.

1) As I said (I was careful with terminology), no mention of Hellenes or neo-Hellenes. The author does mention Greeks of course. In addition to this, and as you pointed out, there are no references to either Vlachs and Arvanites. He does mention Albanians (Albaneses).

What are we to make on all this? Who were these Greeks and Albanians?

Curiously, the author separates and differentiates the T'Zackonians from the Greeks proper: "THE Inhabitants of the Morea, are Turks, Greeks, Albaneses and T'Zackonians." And also: "The T'Zackonians are most in Towns, they are a very poor People, serving as Porters, both Men and Women carrying very great Burthens."

Thoughts? Why are these Greek-speaking T'Zackonians classified separately from the Greeks?

2) Any thoughts on what epitomizer of Strabo wrote? Who were these Scythians and/or Scythi-Slavs? What language/dialects did they speak?

There many holes on those theories.

Guess the author of the following paragraphs / verbatim citations -


"Since most Slav toponyms allude to some aspect of nature, they obviously derive from a peasant and shepherd culture. It is not always clear whether they were brought into Greece by Slavs who settled down permanently, by tenants situated on monastic and lay estates, or by the Vlachs, Arvanito-Vlachs, and Albanians, who became thoroughly intermixed with the Slavs, particularly in the western districts.

When the controversy surrounding Fallmerayer's theory was at its height, Thomas Gordon, the Scottish philhellenist and participant in the Greek revolution of 1821 to 1829, observed that certain scholars had looked for traces of Slav settlement and influence in the Peloponnese. But he found that these really belonged to the hellenized descendants of Albanians, who were not only still living there but also still spoke their own language. Gordon, who at least knew the Peloponnese at first hand, maintained that these people were definitely not descendants of Slavs but rather of Albanians, who had come into Greece during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. It is now known that these new immigrants settled down in the Peloponnese and Epirus, particularly in the region of the Pindus Mountains. It is also known that many of these Illyrian Albanians spoke a Latin dialect. They were, in other words, Arvanito-Vlachs, who, besides their own Vlach language, also spoke Albanian fluently. Their subsequent impact on Greece, especially in the south, was much more lasting than that of any of the preceding Slav migrations.

The descent of the Albanians into Attica and the Peloponnese took place after 1382 during the last years of Catalan control (1311-1388). Attica had been recently devastated by a company of Navarrese soldiers of fortune, and as a step towards the repopulation of this region King Peter IV of Aragon gave official consent to Albanian colonization, which subsequently extended to the highlands of Boeotia, thence to Euboea, and, finally, during the Turkish occupation, to the islands of Salamis, Aegina, Angistri, and Andros.

Settlements were made with official concurrence in Achaia, Elis, and Arcadia, whence they spread into Messenia and Argolis.

It is likely that Arvanito-Vlachs and Vlachs were also caught up in the migratory stream of Albanians to the Peloponnese. In this regard Cousinery calls our attention to the fact that there were certain peoples in the mountainous parts of Argolis who, besides speaking Greek, spoke a language which was practically identical with that of the Macedonian Vlachs."

Guess the author/source -


Βλαχοχώρια της Πελοποννήσου, στην περιοχή των Ολυμποχωρίων του Άργους, στην περιοχή των Καλαβρύτων, στον Χελμό (Αροανία), στην λοιπή ορεινή Αρκαδία και στο Παναχαϊκών, πλησίον της Πάτρας.

Είναι και τα βλαχοχώρια του Ταυγέτου της Μάνης, που αποβλαχίστηκαν σχεδόν από τον 17ο και 18ο αιώνα. Μέχρι και τελευταία, στα μέσα του 19ου αιώνα, αρμανόγλωσσοι Βλάχοι ζούσαν σε πολλές ορεινές περιοχές της Πελοποννήσου.

Vlach settlements in Peloponnesus, in the region of Olympus passages of Argos, in the area of Kalavryta, in Chelmos (Aroania)*, the rest of Arcadia and Panachaiko**, near Patras.

The Vlach villages of Taygetos in Mani, who lost the language almost from the 17th and 18th century. Until recently, in the mid 19th century, Armanian-speaking Vlachs live in many mountain areas of the Peloponnese.

* - Aroania, also known as Helmos or Chelmos (Χελμός, from South Slavic chlmo, "summit"), is a mountain range in Achaea.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aroania_(mountain)

** - Panachaiko, also known as Vodias in the Middle Ages, is also a mountain range in Achaea.

The following was said (in 1821, just before the revolution) by one French linguist about the inhabitants of Sparta:

"From their manners, their features, and the names of many of the neighboring places, I should be tempted to regard them as proceeding from Sclavonian blood: many travellers pretend, however, to have discovered in these barbarous hordes traces of a Spartan origin."

Macedonia was not a Greek territory then.
