1. Ancient Greek Macedonian pendant coin jewelry
Macedonia ceased existing in 146 BC when it was conquered by the Romans. Macedonia was part of Bulgaria and people from Macedonia preserved their Slavonic identity and their national name, Bulgarians, until the 19 century. Recently some archeological sources were founded that shows that they were Thracians. Macedonia was not only an essential part of the Bulgarian country but also one of the cultural and spiritual centers of Bulgaria. The only Greeks in Macedonia before the second Balkan war; were the Greek orthodox Vlahos. Celts were exposed to Greek coins when Greek city states of Italy and Kingdom of Macedon employed Celtic warriors as mercenaries in the fifth century BCE. The early Celtic coins were imitations of gold coins of King Philip II of Macedon or Greek city states of Tarentum and Syracuse. This fresh influx of money, and the opening up of a new commercial route from Macedon to the Greek towns of the Thracian coast, by way of the valley of the Strymon, doubtless occasioned the change in standard from Babylonic to Phoenician, which now took place in the Macedonian currency. In order to preserve the customary Greek (though not Asiatic) habit of exchanging 1 gold stater against 24 silver drachms, while, at the same time taking account of the sudden fall in the silver value of gold, he now issued side by side with his gold stater, silver drachms of circ. In the seventh century Macedon was ruled by Dorians but tribes in the north included Greek, Illyrian and Thracian stock. A military and diplomatic genius who also promoted Greek culture, urbanization and trade, Philip formed Macedonia into what would become a world power under his son Alexander. In 334, with 40,000 men he crossed the Hellespont with the aim of liberating the Greek city-states of Asia Minor from Persian domination. The stylis held by Nike was an image of a protecting deity on the stern of a Greek ship. The Zeus on the reverse was meant to appeal to the Greeks and eastern subjects of Alexander who would identify Zeus with their own equivalent, for example in Phoenicia as Melquart.
