Cities of Alexander the Great by P. M Fraser( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cities founded by Alexander the Great were an essential part of his overall achievement. The problems concerning them, however, are many - and some incapable of solution. This book attempts to unravel the tradition, seeking to demonstrate that it originated in a tendentious political pamphlet of the third century BC, written in Ptolemaic Alexandria in the context of the development of the earliest version of the Alexander-Romance. The author explores the ramifications of this reconstruction from a lost Greek original through to the Persian and Arab traditions, and concludes that the number of cities commonly claimed to have been founded by Alexander needs to be considerably reduced. The book also includes some more general considerations regarding Alexander's policies and intentions

Lycophronis Alexandra by Lycophron( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Alexandra attributed to Lykophron is a minor poetic masterpiece. At 1474 lines, it is one of the most important and notoriously difficult Greek poems dating from the Hellenistic period (most likely the early second century BC). Most of the poem purports to be a prophecy by the mythical Trojan princess, Kassandra, the most beautiful of the daughters of King Priam, and her prophecy ranges from the Trojan War to the historical Roman conquest of Greece, which took place in the poet's own time. The poem's importance arises from the light which it sheds on Greek religion (in particular the role of women), on foundation myths and myths of colonial identity, and on local - especially Italian - cults and cult places. The difficulty of the poem stems from its unusual vocabulary - many words of ancient Greek are found only in this poem - and the riddling and meandering way in which most of the many mythological characters are referenced. As well as providing the Greek text in full and its English translation, this volume provides the first ever full-length commentary in English on the poem."-- dust jacket
