While I was searching about using of 'Barbarian' notion in several contextes in antiquity I found the following text:

Quote:
Thucydides 4.124-7 maintains that they were ‘barbarian’; so also Isocrates, Philipus 106-8, Demosthenes, Olynth.3.24.

Medieval and modern Greek By Robert Browning, 1983, p.2.

In fact, this is the first time I acknowledged that Macedonians were labeled as 'Barbarians' by Isocrates. I could not verify anything so far.
Soldier of Macedon you seem well-informed about Isocrates speeches...do you know the exact passage where Isocrates denote Macedonians as Barbarians?
