In 335 BC the young Macedonian King, Alexander III with his Greek allies besieged Thebes and razed it to the ground. The Nicomedian Arrian provides a detailed account on the event that shocked the Greek world, but he, unlike the other historians (Diodorus, Plutarch), tries to exonerate Alexander from the responsibility for the devastation of the city. On the one hand, the present paper makes an attempt to display the sophisticated methods of Arrian with which he manipulates his readers by stealth, on the other hand seeks the answer to the question why it may have been important to the Nicomedian historiographer to gloss over Alexander’s deeds in Thebes.

The article attempts to identify the possible origins of the iconography of a scene depicting Osiris in TT 65, the late Ramesside tomb of Imiseba. Revealing an apparent dependence on representations of the ruling king in Theban tombs of the early Eighteenth Dynasty, an analysis is presented of these, most particularly of that of the vizier Useramun (TT 131). Consequently, it also offers an argument in favour of considering the Middle Kingdom tomb TT 60 as providing the eventual model for the early Thutmoside scenes.

The analysis of three small hieratic papyrus fragments coming from a secondary burial place (Tomb B) in the outer courtyard of TT 32 shows that the otherwise rare custom of attaching the papyrus to the outer surfaces of mummy linen via a resinous substance was not only occurring in Ptolemaic Akhmim but is thus attested in Thebes too.

The paper presents possible explanations to issues raised by the newly discovered text of Hyperides that offers previously unknown data about the number of Athenian ships at Salamis, Artemision and the Athenian contingent in the Corinthian League. In the case of the ships the orator in all probability drew on Herodotus’ text, but also distorted it by emphasizing Athens’ involvement in the Persian wars. All this to present a historical parallel of the one sided alliance between Athens and Thebes in 338 BC and by doing so to defend it. Athenians in their glorious past never calculated their financial sacrifices and after the victory they were given the leadership by the Greeks voluntarily. Something similar could have happened after Chaeronea. Following the proposed reconstruction, the Athenians provided one tenth of the allied Greek-Macedonian army according to the Corinthian Treaty in all branches of warfare (cavalry, infantry and navy).
