Herodotus describes the south borders of Macedonia as being the River Peneios between Olympus and the Ossa Mountains coming to an agreement with the geographer Strabo. He also acknowledged Macedonia as the area around the west foothills of Olympus and the Pieria Mountains, following the River Aliakmon to its southwest springs and then going up northwest on the Pindus Mountain range. Both Herodotus and Thucydides considered the River Strymon in Greece as the eastern borders of ancient Macedonia. The Epirotan tribe of Orestesof Upper Macedonia constituted the western borders of ancient Macedonia. Strabo gave the name of Upper Macedonia to the country about Lyncestis, Pelagonia, Orestias, and Elimia which now lays in the southern most border of the former Yugoslav Republic and is the 4% that was not liberated from foreign occupation and is still outside of Greece.
