From the Fields of Chaeronea…

It has been a long time since I last read a graphic novel but this one looks interesting – The Sacred Band of Thebes. From an Alexander perspective, it will be interesting to see how writers Bart Baker, Sid Jacobson and Glenn Rabney portray the role of Philip II and Alexander in the fall of the band during the Battle of Chaeronea.

“If there were only some way of contriving that an army should be made up of lovers and their loves, they would be the very best governors of their own city, abstaining from all dishonour, and emulating one another in honour; and when fighting at each other’s side, although a mere handful, they would overcome the world.” – Plato: Symposium
