Re: The Sphinxes Guarding the Lion Tomb Entrance at Amphipolis

@agesilaos I don't say Cassander may had buildt that tomb for his father, I say he may had used for his father the tomb buildt for Alexander or Haphaestion. A perfect act of usurpation ! The sources don't talk about that, but we know most of them are lost. And if the tomb originally was created for ...

Re: The Sphinxes Guarding the Lion Tomb Entrance at Amphipolis

Hello everyone ! I'm just wondering now, as many, if the Amphipolis tomb could have been buildt in intent to be a tomb and a heroon for Alexander or Hephaestion, and re-used for someone else, due to the fact the initial corpse never came back to Macedonia : Alexander because he went to Egypt, or Hep...

Re: Personality test.

Hello ! I don't thing Freud's theory is a good way to understand A' s mind, because true or not, this theory belongs to a civilisation and a century wich are not A' s ones.
