Short description of contents:
This paper aims to examine the negative portrayal of Alexander the Great provided in the Epitome throughout the comparison between Alexander II and Philip II, at the end of Book 9, and the remarks and criticisms in Books 11 and 12. Justin, and Trogus, characterize Alexander as a son who merely accomplished a paternal project of empire but betrayed his Macedonian roots, as a king merciless with his own men and able to terrify the world; unconquered on the battlefield but not really Great, because he got worse than Philip did. Therefore, Justin, and Trogus, seem not consider Alexander's deeds as a relevant caesura in historical time.
