This collection of essays by 17 international scholars dealing mainly with 4th-century Greek and Macedonian history and archaeology - especially the period of Philip II and Alexander the Great. Sources studied include Thucydides, Diodorus, Siculus, Arrian and Polybius. A new archaeological site is presented, as well as a hitherto unpublished krater from Macedonia, and the use of numismatic evidence is used to discuss the earlier-Argead monarchy in a new way. Historical essays centre on Philip II's diplomacy; a new interpretation of the controversy surrounding Alexander the Great's request for deification; Antipater, a long-neglected figure; a new evaluation of the Greek attitude to Macedonian hegemony; Agis II, and important and new implications for Macedonian manpower; and Xenophon's exile. The essays represent the most recent contributions to scholarship in these areas.
