Olympus News on Prostration

A news report from Alexander’s camp!

Actually, a dramatic reconstruction by a Cambridge PhD student of a tense moment during Alexander’s campaign.  The Persians Alexander has conquered have started prostrating themselves before him, just like they did for their old kings.  Should Alexander’s Greek and Macedonian followers do the same, or is this a step too far?  And what does Alexander mean by asking them to do it?  Does he now think he’s a god, or is he just trying to please his Persian subjects?
