Relief carvings from the Alexander Sarcophagus, depicting Alexander’s triumph at Issus, Sidon, circa 330 BCE. This sarcophagus was not made for Alexander the Great himself but was likely commissioned by a local satrap looking to associate himself favorably with his region’s new ruler. Archaeologists suspect it was created by a Rhodian workshop based in Anatolia.
