Another school relates it to the Doric dialects of Ancient Greek. While the Ancient Macedonians were considered barbarians by their Greek neighbors beyond the Olympus, by the end of the 5th century BC, the native aristocracy was substantially Hellenized and exposed to the influence of the city-states in the south and their colonies.

Ancient Macedonians were the core of the Kingdom of Macedon, which reached the peak of its might under Alexander the Great in the 4th century. In the latter part of the 20th century, Slavic Macedonian and Greek nationalists, especially in the diaspora, have vied for the heritage of Ancient Macedonians, each claiming to be their rightful ethnic heirs.
