The Alexander historians in Byzantium


This paper intends to offer the first results of an investigation about the reception of the historians of Alexander in Byzantium. It is focused on the three authors whose work has been fully preserved (Diodorus of Sicily, Plutarch, and Arrian) and will not tackle the controversial question of establishing whether the Byzantines could also read some of the works from which only fragments survived. It will combine a philological approach with a literary investigation.
