Images for your consideration

A suggested source -- some of these might be useful here -- for public domain imagery of Alexander: [1] Russell Potter 11:18, 1 June 2007 (CDT)

Hi Russell, thanks. I've been looking for images that might be used on this article, although I think that first the article should be developed. --José Leonardo Andrade 05:13, 2 June 2007 (CDT)

Olympias - third or fourth wife

Some sources claim that Olympias was Philip's third wife, while others says she was the fourth. I wrote she was his fourth, but maybe it would be better to ignore this little detail in this article.

According to Satyrus the Peripatetic the order is:

  • Audata
  • Phila
  • Nikesipolis/Philina (he married these two on the same year)
  • Olympias
  • Meda
  • Cleopatra
