Just How Great Was Alexander?

It seems that the first person to publicly name Alexander III of Macedeon the Great was a third century BC Roman playwright Titus Maccius Plautus. There is no doubting that the reference reflected Alexander’s extraordinary military and diplomatic skills. By the age of 33 he had amassed the largest empire the world had ever known. He carved a swathe through modern day Turkey, the Holy Land and into Egypt before he turned and headed towards his implacable foe, Darius III of Persia. Not content with swallowing the Persian Empire, Alexander moved ever eastward until he reached India. He only stopped his advance because of the pleading of his troops to go home. Unfortunately, Alexander died on the return journey. His tomb has never been found.
