After Alexander the Great subdued Sidon, he told Hephaestion to bestow its crown on whom he pleased. Hephaestion offered it to two brothers with whom he lodged. They declined, saying the king must be of royal blood. They named Abdalonymus, who, although royal, had fallen into such poverty that he supported himself with a small garden. Hephaestion told the brothers to take the royal crown and robes to Abdalonymus. They found him weeding his garden, told him to wash, invested him with the ensigns of royalty, and conducted him to Alexander. Alexander, turning to those around him, said, "I wish to know how he bore his poverty." Abdalonymus replied, "I wish to heaven that I may bear my prosperity as well! These hands have managed all my necessities and as I possessed nothing, I wanted nothing." Alexander was so pleased that gave the new king the palace and estate of Strato, his predecessor, and augmented his dominions from the neighboring country.
