Re: New book reviews wanted

I sent an email to the address on the reviews page (philoalexandros-at-hotmail.com), but never got a reply. Tried to message you (Sikander) and was told (by the board) I can't. So might want to update the email on the reviews page (and/or here), in order to get new reviews sent in. --John Greetings...

Re: what is the origin of this proverb

Greetings Persian, It is unfortunate that you made a decision to post on this site in the manner you did. You might have tried opening a discussion comparing various Persian kings before and during the time of Alexander; that would have been interesting, considering the beginnings and contributions ...

Consequences of Actions

Greetings, Looking at events that occurred just over the initial two week period following the death of Alexander, I am interested in what members feel might have been the power dynamics and relationships between the "primary players". Your thoughts, perhaps on: 1) the Council of Four? 2) ...

Re: Barbarian.

Greetings Jeanne,

Yes, I can post off and on; I often seem to get logged out when I try to post a reply or new topic.

Thank you for the expanded thoughts on the meaning of "barbarian". It <is> interesting how words can change meaning over time!

Re: Barbarian.

Greetings Dean, If I recall correctly, simply put, the term originally meant someone who was not Greek, or did not speak Greek, or did not follow Greek customs. It was the Romans who began to add more meaning to the word, but I believe the additional meaning of "savage" or what have you be...
