Alex. 8, 26). By 334 Alexander had asserted his control over Macedon and the Greek mainland.

The court of mid-third-century Macedon under the lengthy rule of Antigonus Gonatas is well represented in our somewhat scattered and anecdotal evidence. Power, wealth and importantly stability brought many leading figures here. There were at various times philosophers such as Menedemus of Eretria, the Stoic Persaeus, and the Cynic-inspired Bion of Borysthenes, and poets such as Aratus, whose Phaenomena was said to have been written at Antigonus’ request, and the now obscure Antagoras of Rhodes (Vita Arati 15; for philosophers, Erskine 1990).
