Book review/Collaboration: “Alexander’s Lovers” by Andrew Michael Chugg

  • the tetradrammas coined in Babylon change: is it an error or is there an interesting explanation that the author suggests?;
  • Alexander was cultured: he quoted Homer and Euripides as he spoke;
  • in this book there are many photos of which many beautiful drawings by the same author;
  • the author makes particular reference to the lost primary sources: he integrates the ancient sources that have come down to us with the fragments that came to us from the primary sources and this is what I liked very much because in doing so the author has thoroughly probed the material and the topic. Chugg has integrated, filled, revised the ancient sources thanks to the primary ones. I really liked this method because the author compares it from various points of view for every fact he wants to analyze. Very very good.
