Demetrius the Besieger

Pat Wheatley and Charlotte Dunn

  • Offers the first historical account of the life of Demetrius the Besieger to be published in English, shedding new light on a previously neglected yet highly significant successor to Alexander the Great
  • Places the figure of Demetrius in his historical context in an accessible yet scholarly treatment of a notoriously difficult historical period
  • Draws on a large and disparate collection of evidence and a range of research approaches, covering topics such as ancient coinage, military logistics, and chronology
