1) Acta S. Demetrii, c. ii.

It is there mentioned as a chief cause of the second Slavonic onslaught on Thessalonica that the city sheltered escaped "mancipia" from the interior of Illyricum. One city only ought not to be allowed to hold out when all the other cities and provinces round had been made void of Roman habitation; "hec autem" (to quote the Latin version) "sola superesset omnesque e Danubii partibus Pannoniaque et Dacia et Dardania reliquisque provinciis et urbibus transfugas reciperet atque in sinu suo foveret." The citizens of Naissus and Serdica are specially mentioned.

See page 140 in Sir Arthus Evans' book for more info and proof of this quote: Antiquarian Researches in Illyricum: Parts I-IV.

2) Nakratzas, pages 262, 263.

The ethnic origin of the inhabitants of Bulgaria and eastern Thrace.

Population of Macedonia and Adjacent Areas.

What follows is a simple listing of historical facts. It will disturb a great number of nationalists all over the Balkans.

Migrations, settlements and colonies, wholesale removal of populations and tribes and their forceful settlement in new regions - as conducted by Roman authorities:

1) Unknown number of "barbarians" settled south of the river Danube in 62 A.D. In the sources, their number is mentioned to be around 100,000 (most likely a 'number' that was conjured up, but nonetheless..). No details about ethnic origin of this population.

2) In 268-270 A.D. a great number of Goths settled south of the river Danube. Many ended up being included in the Roman army.

3) Around 273 A.D., Carpi settled in Scythia Minor province. Scholars have linked the Carpi to a variety of ethnic groups, including Sarmatians, Thracians, Germans, and Celts.

4) In 275 A.D., a great number of Dacians settled south of the Danube.

5) A few years later, 100,000 Bastarnae settled south of Danube. They were followed by Vandals, Gepids, and others.

6) In 282 A.D., 20,000 Sarmatians settled south of Danube.

7) 290 A.D., unknown number of Arabs settled in Thrace.

8) Towards the end of the 290's A.D., additional groups of Carpi and Bastarnae settled south of Danube.

9) 303 A.D., unknown tribe settled in Thrace.

10) 334 A.D., 300,000 Sarmatians, Goths, Iazyges settled throughout Macedonia, Thrace, and Scythia Minor.

11) New transplantation of Goths in 348 A.D.

12) I will stop here, although there are a few additional facts along the same lines. Goths, Sarmatians, Celts, tribes of unknown origin continued to be settled south of Danube (..in different waves).

Encyclopaedia Londinensis, or, Universal dictionary of arts ..., Volume 12

http://books.google.ca/books?id=FVgM...Epirus&f=false

"The Sclavonian language is spoken in Epirus, the western part of Macedonia, in Bosnia, Servia, Bulgaria, in part of Thrace, in Dalmatia, Croatia, in Poland, Bohemia, Russia, and Mingerlia in Asia, whence it is frequently used in the seraglio at Constantinople. Many of the great men of Turkey understand it, and frequently use it..."

1.A) "Scholars paid less attention to another chapter, in which Emperor Constantine VII refers to measures taken by Emperor Justinian II in 688 or 689. Following his defeat by the Bulgars in a mountain pass near Philippopolis (present-day Plovdiv, in Bulgaria), Emperor Justinian II settled groups of "Scythians" around the gorges of the river Struma, thus laying the foundations of the Strymon kleisoura, later to become the theme (province) by the same name."

[Source: Page 98 -> "Southeastern Europe in the Middle Ages, 500-1250", F. Curta.]

1.B) "Justinian is also reported to have settled 'Scythians' in east Macedonia in the Strymon region."

[Source: Page 71, footnote 79 -> "Byzantium in the Seventh Century: The Transformation of a Culture", J.F. Haldon.]

Wilkinson, H. R., (1951), Maps and politics. A review of the ethnographic cartography of Macedonia, page 43: "He drew attention to the Vardariotes, pre-Osmanli Turks, who had become Christianized, had settled in the Vardar valley and then had been assimilated by the Slavs. (F. Meinhard distinguished a similar group in south-western Macedonia but referred to them as Bardariotes. See p. 127)."

Wilkinson, H. R., (1951), Maps and politics. A review of the ethnographic cartography of Macedonia, page 127: "The Bardariotes living in small groups south of Kastoria were also depicted on Meinhard's map. They had generally been classified as Turks."

"On sait que dernierement un eveque russe, M. Porphyrius Uspenski, a decouvert des documents qui demontrent que les allies des Avars Rynchini, qu'on a confondus avec les Slaves, n'etaient que des Valaques (οι Βλαχοι Ρυγχίνοι). Istoria Athoni, 3me section, chap. VII, p. 320."

English summary: A Russian bishop, M. Porphyrius Uspenski, has discovered documents that demonstrate that the allies of the Avars Rynchini, that we confused with the Slavs, were only Vlachs (οι Βλαχοι Ρυγχίνοι). Istoria Athoni, 3rd section, c. VII, p. 320.

Source -> Wace, A., Thomson, B., (1914), The Nomads of the Balkans:

Page 30: "The Kupatshari are hellenized or semi-hellenized Vlachs. That is to say that through intermarriage and the influence of the church and Greek education they have abandoned their native language. They still however retain the Vlach national costume, and many Vlach words occur in their dialect as well as many non-Greek sounds such as sh, zh, tsh, and dzh. They inhabit the district between Ghrevena and the pure Vlach villages of Pindus. At one of their villages, Labanitsa, which is only half hellenized we obtained some insight as to the process by which denationalisation occurs. In the school and church Greek is the only language used. All the older men in the village know Vlach and so do many of the women."

Page 45: "They are called Kupatshari, "men of the oak tree" (kupatshu being Vlach for oak tree), because the district Grevena is covered in oak scrub and forest. The people of the highest of their villages, such as Kipourio and Philippaei..."

Page 46: "...and in Shatishta and Kozhani in which two latter towns the hellenized Vlachs form the strongest part of the Greek population."


Source -> The Close Racial Kinship Between the Greeks, Bulgarians, and Turks: Macedonia and Thrace By Dr. George Nakratzas; Pages 76, 77, & 85:

i) "Once they had embraced the agricultural life, the Kupatshari became Hellenised to such an extent that, by 1912, the Aromunian or Vlach language was spoken only by the old people. Today, the young Kupatshari are not even aware of their Vlach origins. Many Kupatshari moved to urban centres, where such surnames as Koupatsaras, Koupatsaris, and Koupassaris still survive."

ii) "In the Grevena area, there was one more interesting group of Vlachs, the Turko-Vlach Valahades, who lived alongside the Kupatshari. There were about 12,000 of them, and they lived in the low foothills of the Pindos near Siatista. Until 1924, when they left for Turkey under the terms of the exchange of populations, they spoke Greek. ... The fact that the Valahades lived in close proximity to the Kupatshari offers evidence of their Kupatshari origins."

iii) "On all the ethnological maps of the nineteenth century, the inhabitants of the Grevena area are described as being of Greek origin. They were Greek-speakers, certainly ... but their Greek origin is a matter of some doubt. Serious evidence of their non-Greek origin is furnished by the Athenian bishop Bardanes, who in 1210 elected to go to the see of Grevena, on the grounds that the local people did not speak Greek and were uncivilised."

iv) "There is no mention of Vlachs having migrated to the Kozani tableland. The people of this area were almost exclusively Turks from Konya, with the exception of the inhabitants of Kozani itself, who were mostly of Vlach origin."

v) "Kozani and Veria are separated by Mount Vermion, where the Vlachs of the Vermion group lived. ... The Vlach villages are: Volanda, Kato Seli, Ano Seli, Maroussa, Doliani, Xirolivadi, Kastania, and Tsarkovian. The inhabitants of the Vermion villages originally came from Moskhopoli, Samarina, Avdela and Frasheri, and settled here after 1770..."
