Welcome to pothos.org, Alexander the Great's home on the web.

Welcome to pothos.org.  In 1994, this became the first web site dedicated to Alexander the Great - arguably the most famous secular person in history.  The site has grown over the years and is maintained by a team of enthusiasts. The forum is our tour de force - a place where people can discuss Alexander, and argue about aspects of his life, career and death, at a level that suits them. Some of our forum members are beginners, people who are just starting out on their studies of Alexander; others are academics who might or might not specialise in Alexander studies. Whatever your level of interest and knowledge, you will find like-minded people who love to discuss and debate the life of Alexander the Great.
