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.
