Omorfi (beautiful) Thessaloniki!

Thessaloniki.......Is it Salonicco, Selanik, Solun? Salonica or Salonique? There are at least thirteen medieval variants alone; the city is an indexer,s nightmare and a linguist's delight...It is only the foreigners who make things difficult for themselves, for the Greek etymology is perfectly straight forward. The daughter of a local ruler, Philip of Macedon, was called Thessaloniki, and the city was named after her: both daughter and city commemorated the triumph (Niki) of her father over the people of Thessaly as he extended Macedonian power throughout Greece....located in northern Greece, was long a fascinating crossroads metropolis of different religions and ethnicities, where Egyptian merchants, Spanish Jews, Orthodox Greeks, Sufi dervishes and Albanian brigands all rubbed shoulders........Mark Mazower, Salonica city of ghosts . ....Thessaloniki, the second home, for tens of thousands of Greeks, uprooted after the destruction and genocide in Asia Minor and East Thrace by the Turks.....
