Abstract

It is hard to investigate Alexander's propaganda in presence of late authors who narrate the Asiatic expedition. Nevertheless, some episodes remark the border between reality and fiction bringing to light Alexander's propaganda machine orchestrated by the king personally or through his entourage. This paper focuses on this topic seeking to show when Alexander manipulated the information imposing 'his own version', or suppressing the dissenting voices.
