טקסט

For it was neither every kind of fame nor fame from every source that he courted, as Philip did, who plumed himself like a sophist on the power of his oratory, and took care to have the victories of his chariots at Olympia Engraved upon his coins; [10] nay, when those about him [Alexander] enquired whether he would be willing to contend in the foot-race at the Olympic Games, since he was swift on foot, "yes," said he, "if I could have kings as my contestants." [11] And in general Alexander appears to have been averse to the whole race of athletes; at any rate, though he instituted very many contests, not only for tragic poets and players on the flute and players on the lyre, but also for rhapsodists, as well as for hunting of every sort and for fighting with stave, he took no interest in offering prizes either for boxing or for the pancratium.
