Hammond, Nicholas Geoffrey Lempriere. 1993. Sources for Alexander the Great: an anlysis of Plutarch's Life and Arrian's Anabasis Alexandrou. Cambridge Classical Studies. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge. 


p. 248-51

pp. 248-9: on the basis of Arrian's grammar H aims to differentiate between the primary sources. The main facts of the narrative are assigned (without explanation) to Ptolemy, the mention of pothos to Aristoboulos, perhaps also the mention of Alexander's delight to discover Dionysos in India. c

On the other hand, the story about Alex receiving the envoys while still dusty and in military attire is ascribed to a legomenon. The same holds for the two speeces of Akouphis {p. 250}, "which cannot have been recorded at the time or remembered verbatim". Ditto for the baccanalia on Mt. Meros. This last bit is ascribed to Kleitarchos.

There is an affinity between Arrian and Plutarch, who both mention the Akouphis episode, which does not appear in Curtius and Justin. H guesses that this common source, who is not Kleitarchos, is rather Chares of Mitylene, "who gave the Indian name of the wine-making god (FGrH 125 F17), evidently in reference to the god at Nysa". c

p. 251: Arrian (and Just. 12.7.6 militiam ... dei) are surprised by Dionysos' use of military force. c

"...Ptolemy and Aristobulus as the sources behind Arrian 5.2.1 reported that A(lexander) wanted the wanderings of Dionysus and his founding of Nysa to be credible, so that he and his Macedonians would have already gone as far as and would now go farther than Dionysos, and so that the Macedonians would not refuse to go with him".
