Alexander the Great
I edit papers for a certain person whose referee for one paper gave this
"Based on this, he builds most of his following argumentation against
Alexander and for Antiochus, as well as the exact date and place of the
encounter (p.14-20). Unfortunately, he also ignores the epigraphical
sources, which are essential for all historical subjects. E.g. his arguments
against Alexander the Great, that his name wasn�t used in Palestine before
140/30 BC (p. 7) but the name Antiochus was, could (and should) be easily
proven by looking at the (grave- or devote-) inscriptions of this time."
Could someone please help me with finding some resources for appropriate
epigraphical and grave- or devote- inscriptions? Obviously, we are not in a
position to read these on-site at the graves...
Thank you all.
