Summary
The subject of Alexander continues to fascinate, not only because it is controversial, but also because it is recognized to be relevant to us, especially in light of recent and current world events. This collection of eleven studies is noteworthy for its chronological range, from the time of Dion of Syracuse in the mid-fourth century to that of Antigonus and his son Demetrius Poliorcetes in the early third century, and for its variety of topics, from the extravagant honors for Dion at Syracuse to the Alexander-coinage of the Besieger at Tyre. The leitmotiv, however, is Alexander the Great, with six essays dealing with him directly, and the remaining five doing so at least tangentially
