טקסט

A story is prevalent that he (Alexander) heard that the Arabs honored only two gods, Ouranos and Dionysos - Ouranos because he is visible and contains within himself the stars and especially the sun, from which the greatest and most obvious benefit comes to all human affairs; Dionysos in view of his reported expedition to India - and that Alexander therefore thought himself worthy to be regarded as a third god by the Arabs, since his achievements were as magnificent as those of Dionysos, given that he would conquer the Arabians too, and permit them, like the Indians, to be governed by their own customs.
