On the top of all the previous other pages existing on the Web, there is this

It has been realised from many books dealing with this subject and especially
the excellent book by Pierre BRIANT : « De la Grèce à l’Orient,

If you look for other possibilities on the Web, you will find other links
too, in the column of the same name. Otherwise, if you are in the area around
Paris or if you may plan to be there, I can not but encourage you to go to the
Musée du Louvre which contains inestimable
canvas ( Le Brun ) or sculptures ( Puget ) about the fabulous destiny of Alexander
If you have some questions, remarks or flatteries, you can adress them to
this mail : firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those that may be interested, an English version is in the pipeline.
Have a good reading !
