Arrian presents two conflicting summaries of Alexander the Great’s character in his Anabasis. This thesis explains how this conflict can be resolved through analysis of Arrian’s identity as a Roman Greek, his reliance on the classical literary tradition, and the social and political background of the second century A.D.
