Macedonian Kingdom, Kassander, c. 319 - 297 B.C.

|Macedonian| |Kingdom|, |Macedonian| |Kingdom,| |Kassander,| |c.| |319| |-| |297| |B.C.|, |AE| |19|
Kassander arrived at Alexander the Great's court in Babylon in 323 B.C., not long before Alexander's death. A later contemporary suggested he had been sent by his father to poison the king. Whatever the truth of this suggestion, Kassander stood out among the Diadochi in his hostility to Alexander's memory. As Kassander and the other diadochi struggled for power, Alexander IV, Roxana, and Alexander's supposed illegitimate son Heracles were all executed on Kassander's orders, and a guarantee to Olympias to spare her life was not respected. Kassander's decision to restore Thebes, which had been destroyed under Alexander, was perceived at the time to be a snub to the deceased King. It was later even said that he could not pass a statue of Alexander without feeling faint.
