SIMPLY THE BEST. ALEXANDER’S LAST WORDS, AND THE MACEDONIAN KINGSHIP
Languages of publication
Alexander’s last words, as recorded in the ancient sources, would be referred to as a legacy of his Empire to the best of his generals. Nevertheless, these words would also be reviewed as a key information in order to understand the Macedonian system of succession during the Argead dynasty. Also, the changes provided by the activities of the Diadochs after Alexander’s death in this traditional system of succession for the Macedonians add new information to our knowledge of the theoretical basis for the foundation of the new Hellenistic kingdoms.
