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

In doing this he recalled the heroic age while also contrasting his own religious observance with the earlier Persian desecration of the shrine (Hdt.
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).
Beyond this overall ‘‘philosophical’’ atmosphere the extant satiric-parodic texts vary widely. Boundaries between genres, styles, and illocutionary modes are porous, and so are those between schools of philosophy. Phoenix’s choliambs dispense lighthearted moral advice, perhaps with a Cynic flavor. Callimachus’ learned and complex Iambi are only loosely attached to the spirit and form of Archaic iambos, containing poems in different meters and on non-satiric topics; in some Plato is an important model.
