Either I had forgotten or I didn't know there is a translation of the Pseudo-Callisthenes Alexander Romance from Armenia available here http://www.attalus.org/armenian/Tales_A ... _trans.pdf.

Also see here http://www.attalus.org/info/alexander.html

Now that's one hell of a find, you don't get to see something that great for free every day. Plus, it's interesting that some of the tales went through Armenia, the civilization's much older than one would think when looking at a small post-Soviet republic in the mountains...
Anyways, I happen to learn Armenian as well since I have to work a lot with clients from the Caucasus region these days (well, and my wife's half Armenian, so this helps in terms of motivation and learning efficiency :mrgreen: ) so this is like if you found oil when digging in a gold mine.
