  1. Why do you stop to write Hephaistion’s portrayal? I like very much your posts about ‘The Second Patroclus’: you are well balanced in judgement and very accurate as for sources.


  2. Silasaila,

    I am happy to report that I have been writing the next post for the last week or so. The reason for the delay is that it turned into a longer consideration of the difficulties Alexander faced while in Bactria-Sogdia. As a result, I’ve ended up writing four posts. The posts are all written but need to be edited. I am hoping I will be able to start posting them by Monday.
