The Athenians established a permanent presence at Amphipolis on the lower Strymon River in 437. The Spartans responded to requests for aid from Perdikkas II in his struggle with Thracian incursions into the Axios region. The confederate kingdom of Lynkestis took the opportunity to separate from the fragile Macedonian coalition and became the strongest tribal state in the region during the second half of the fifth century. Under its own king, Arrhabaios, the Lynkestians proved a powerful army against the combined force of the Macedonians under Perdikkas, the Spartan commander Brasidas with 3,000 hoplites and 1,000 cavalry, and a complement of Chalkidian troops.
Among the large number of writings associated with his name is a study entitled Airs, Waters and Places that associates human health with an individual’s diet, environment, and way of life. The author maintains that the differing characteristics of Asian and European peoples are linked to climate: the absence of major changeable climatic conditions in Asia produces a soft people while the more volatile extremes of Europe mold a tough people. Aristotle argued along similar lines in the fourth century (Politics VII, 7, 1327b20f ): Asian peoples are intelligent but lack spirit while Europeans are spirited although of less native intelligence.
During the Bronze Age Indo-European peoples prevailed in the west and northwest; external influences can be traced to Thracians in the east, Mycenaeans in the south, and people known as the Bryges (or Phryges), whose ceramic styles reflect a central European origin. Evidence suggests that the earlier peoples persisted, although new groups relatively small in overall numbers migrated into the region. Incursions produced shifts in the populations but did not change the basic structure of life that had been developed from the Neolithic Age.
