Alexander was Macedonian in the USA since 1830

Google translator -
One of the most famous historians of the 19th century, Charles Rolin in their books on the art and science of ancient people, makes a clear distinction between Macedonians and Athenians at the time of the greatest kings of Macedonia: Philip and Alexander.

At number two edition published by George Deborn in New York in 1836, Charles Rolin opened many interesting topics, which we will write in the coming days. The material is comprehensive and should be seriously analyzed. One of the more interesting details that you will make an impression, is surely the fact the origin of Plato.[B] Plato was a Macedonian from Thrace, who even after his 15th year of life for the first time encountered the Hellenic language, when heading for Athens to be educated.[/B] There are many interesting details...

Interesting about Plato.

I would like more info on Plato..
Wikipedia (B##$shit) says Plato was born in Athens.

A distinction between Macedonians and Athenians is to be expected, and the story about Plato sounds more like Aristotle. Perhaps the writer of this article misunderstood Charles Rolin. If not, then he should have cited the sources on which Rolin based his theory.

He may have meant Thukydid who was a Thracian if I am not mistaken.

Plato was born around May 21 in 428 or 427 B.C., a year or two after Pericles died and during the Peloponnesian War. [See Ancient Greece Timeline.] He was related to Solon and could trace his ancestry to the last legendary king of Athens, Codrus.

Probably not the right thread for this. Can an admin move the following discussion?

I watched the episode last night and was elated. The script on the tomb is Hellenic and I could make out 'ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΣ' written out. Despite this, Oscar Isaac's character identifies the text as 'Macedonian'. I am curious: to my knowledge the Macedonian Empire employed the Koiné language for adminstrative purposes but in this work of fiction the character identifies the language specifically as Macedonian. In reality, did the ancient Macedonians use a form of Koiné that was clearly distinguishable from other forms and was unique to them?
