23rd – 30th November
As of today I am up to Book III, Chapter 6 of Arrian’s Anabasis. If you would like to read the latest posts, click here. For my list of past posts, click here.
Ancient History Encyclopedia has a very interesting article on Cynnane, Alexander’s half-sister. She was as strong a woman as her brother was a man and came close to seizing the Macedonian throne through her daughter, Adea and Philip III Arrhidaeus, after Alexander’s death.
Read her story here. If you would like to read more about Alexander’s other siblings, I wrote about them as part of my bullet-point series here.
