Modern Historians about Macedonia – William Pinnock


. The first foundation of a monarchy which was destined to rise to such a height of power was laid by Caranus, a descendant of Hercules, who led a colony from Ar’gos to the province of Æ’mathia, which borders on the Therma’ic gulf. 3. His descendants continually enlarged their dominions by subjecting or expelling several of the neighbouring tribes; but when the Persians were about to invade Greece, the then ruler of Macedon was obliged to purchase safety by becoming tributary to Darius.
