EDITORS COMMENTS
The Battle of Issus: A Turning Point in Ancient History This print depicts the pivotal moment of The Battle of Issus, a significant engagement in the history of the ancient world. The scene unfolds before us, with Alexander III of Macedonia, renowned as Alexander the Great, leading his troops against the Achaemenid king Darius III. The year was 333 BC, and the location was the coastal plain of Issus in modern-day Turkey. Alexander, a brilliant military strategist, had been on a relentless quest to expand his empire, which had already seen him conquer Greece and much of the Persian satraps. Darius, the last Achaemenid king, had amassed a vast army to confront this formidable adversary. The two forces clashed, each determined to secure their dominance in the ancient world. The print beautifully captures the intensity and chaos of the battlefield. Alexander, astride his horse Bucephalus, is shown in the midst of the fray, his troops rallying behind him. Darius, on his chariot, faces him, with his army forming a defensive line behind. The clash of arms, the thunder of hooves, and the cacophony of war cries fill the air as the two forces collide. The Battle of Issus proved to be a turning point in history. Alexander's victory marked the end of the Achaemenid Empire and the beginning of the Hellenistic period. The conquests of Alexander the Great would forever change the course of Western civilization. This print serves as a poignant reminder of the epic struggles that shaped our past and continues to inspire us today.
