Alexander the Great large round plaque



Alexander III the Great, the King of Macedonia and conqueror of the Persian Empire is considered
one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. He was inspiration for later conquerors such as
Hannibal the Carthaginian, the Romans Pompey and Caesar, and Napoleon. Alexander was born
in 356 BC in Pella, the ancient capital of Macedonia. He was son of Philip II, King of Macedonia,
and Olympias, the princess of neighboring Epirus. At age 20, having come to the throne of
Macedonia after his father's death, he led the Macedonian army against the Persian king Darius
and conquered the entire Persian Empire. Macedonia became to largest empire, stretching from
Europe to India and for the next three centuries the Macedonians ruled most of this area, ending
with Cleopatra VII in 30 BC, the last Macedonian ruler of Egypt.

Alexander the Great Sarcophagus



This is one of the four panels of the Alexander Sacrophagus, the hunting scene showing Macedonians and Persians hunting
wild animals together, with the help of dogs. Some Macedonians are depicted in heroic nudity, and that is especially the case
in the remaining panels of Alexander Sarcophagus where unlike in this panel, the Macedonians and Persians are fighting
each other. The Macedonian cavalry companions are dressed unlike the foot soldiers, and on one of the panels, the sculptor
carved out the figure of the Macedonian king Alexander the Great riding his horse Buchephales











Below is a picture of the original Alexander Sarcophagus now in the Istanbul Museum, depicting the joint hunt
scene of Macedonians and the Persians. Compare with our reconstruction above.

and the Macedonian general Perdiccas (the last figure, also on horse).

Alexander the Great plaque



This plaque depicts the head of Alexander the Great. It comes from the coins of the Macedonian king
Lysimachus who ruled Thrace and it shows Alexander the Great with the horn of Ammon. Alexander III the
Great, the King of Macedonia and conqueror of the Persian Empire is considered one of the greatest military
geniuses of all times. He was inspiration for later conquerors such as Hannibal the Carthaginian, the
Romans Pompey and Caesar, and Napoleon. Alexander was son of Philip II, King of Macedonia, and
Olympias, the princess of neighboring Epirus. Having conquered the entire Persian Empire he made
Macedonia the largest world empire, stretching from Europe to India. For the next three centuries the
Macedonians ruled most of this vast area, ending with Cleopatra VII in 30 BC, the last Macedonian ruler of
Egypt. This period of 300 years is known today as "Hellenistic".
