After the campaign of Darius against Scythia, Macedonia is forced to recognize the Persian power; Persian military leader Megabaz sends seven Persian MPs to seek "land and water" for Darius (Herodotus); At the banquet of Aminta's son, Alexander, he killed the Persians because they also asked for women, which was contrary to Macedonian customs.
