Toothpaste,

Did the Paionians have their own language, or did they speak ancient "Greek"?
Why do I ask?

Did you know that the Paionians, Pelagonians, Lyncestians, etc (the Macedonian tribes from Upper Macedonians) had no communication problems (language, culture, etc) amongst the tribes of Upper Macedonia, nor with the Macedonian tribes from Lower Macedonia?


This is because they were they same Macedonian people, from different tribes.

In fact, they were related. Philip's (Philip II of Macedon) mother, Eurydice, was a Lyncestian.

Quite similar to the way that in Macedonia TODAY we have Mijaks and Brsjaks, both are Macedonian tribes.
