6-Arrian, Anabsis 4.22.4
Crossing the Caucasus in ten days, he arrived at Alexandria, the city he had founded in the district of the Parapamisadae during his first expedition to Bactra. The hyparch whom he had then put in charge of the city was now dismissed from his office, as he appeared to have governed badly.
He settled in Alexandria more people from the neighborhood together with all the soldiers unfit for fighting and ordered Nicanor, one of the Companions, to govern the city itself, while he appointed Tyriespis satrap of the country both of the Parapamisadae and of the land as far as the river Cophen.
Then after reaching Nicaea and sacrificing to Athena, he advanced towards the Cophen, having sent a herald in advance to Taxilas and the Indians on this side of the river Indus with orders to meet him, each at their earliest convenience; Taxilas and the other hyparchs complied, bringing the gifts the Indians prize most, and promised to give him the elephants they had, twenty-five in number.
