On 31st August last year…

… I started my ‘Fb Arrian’ project over on my Alexander Facebook page: a quote and some comments from Arrian’s Anabasis, one chapter a day. Rather to my surprise, I have managed to keep it going ever since.

I haven’t written a post every day – I did for a few weeks then started writing in advance so that there would be something to publish on the days when I couldn’t write anything. At best, I have been two weeks ahead of schedule; at ‘worst’ just one day.

Today, 29th February, my post for Book 7 Chapter 12 went up and I wrote my post for VII.19, which means I have just eleven more to write and then – ? A rest, I think. And then, I hope I can come back to the blog as the Fb Arrian work has caused me to neglect it woefully.

In the meantime, here is a link to all my posts over the seven books. If you would like to learn more about Alexander, I could not recommend a project like this enough. It has taken a lot of work but has allowed me to dive much more deeply into Arrian than I have ever done before and learn things that I am sure I will carry with me for a long time to come.

    You did not write you posts everyday, but many would not miss a single one and read daily.
