The peoples of Upper Macedonia were ethnically, economically, socially, culturally and politically more akin to the Epeirotic ethne than to the lower Macedonians (or The Thessalians). Hammond has long since drawn attention to the fact that they were called Mollossic ethne by the earliest writers, that like their Epeirote brothers they practised transhumant pastoralism, that they did not live in cities but in open villages and that they were organised in territorial units.
