Caption: Alexander the Great (356-323 BC), King of Macedon. Alexander succeeded his father as king in 336 BC. In a series of wars over a period of ten years he defeated the Persian Empire and inaugurated the Hellenistic Period in which aspects of Greek culture spread to places as far apart as Egypt and India. This woodcut portrait is from the 1575 Basle edition of Elogia virorum bellica virtute illustrium (Praise of Men Illustrious for Courage in War) by the Italian historian and biographer Paolo Giovio (1483-1552).
