After discussing the rise to power of Darius III, Diodorus extensively relates the first stages of the war between Alexander III the Great of Macedon and Darius III up to the Battle of Gaugamela. Subsequently Alexander’s crossing into Asia and his performance at Troy, the Battle of the Granicus and its aftermath, the Battle of Issus, the siege of Tyre, the invasion of Egypt, and the Battle of Gaugamela come to the fore, followed by Alexander’s entry into Persepolis and the fate of this city.

Keywords:   Darius III, Alexander III the Great, Granicus, Issus, Tyre, Egypt, Gaugamela, Persepolis
