Welcome to thesecondachilles.com. This website supports the Twitter account of four famous Macedonians-
- Alexander the Great @AlexanderIII
- Hephaestion @chiliarch
- Ptolemy, Son of Lagos @Ptolemy_I_Soter and
- Thaïs of Athens @PtolemysRHG
The aim of these Twitter accounts is to entertain, and are written as by Alexander et al as he journeys across the Persian empire and into the east. They roughly follow, therefore, the chronology of his life. As the Glossary on this website shows, however, historical accuracy should not be looked for from the Twitter accounts or this website when posts are written as if by Alexander or one of his army.
I hope you enjoy your visit to the website. If you have any comments or constructive criticisms about it or the Twitter accounts, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alexander’s ‘Other Secretary’.
