Bulletin of Ancient Macedonian Studies</em> is an Academic Journal focused in the Historical, Socioeconomical and Cultural perspectives related with Ancient Macedonia, from the Argead Dynasty to the Hellenistic Macedonian Kingdoms (Seleucids, Ptolemies, Antigonids, among others) and the Roman province of Macedonia. https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-san-jose Alexander the Great in Persepolis 2020-03-23T11:14:35+01:00 Christian San Jose sanjog97@outlook.com <p>The present work is intended to analyse the actions carried out by Alexander the Great at Persepolis to, lastly, achieve an interpretation of the events and the fire. These objectives will be attained through the division and analysis of all the details available for Alexander’s study in Persepolis: the background, the archaeological data, the literary sources and the interpretative currents that have had the greatest impact among historians.</p> 2022-02-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 christian San Jose https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-heckel Lysimachos, Thrace and Macedon 2021-09-01T21:34:56+02:00 Waldemar Heckel waldemarheckel39@gmail.com <p>The history of the final years of Lysimachos and his relationship with his Ptolemaic wife, Arsinoe, have failed to take into account the claims of Lysimachos' daughter (Eurydike) and his daughter-in-law (Lysandra) to Macedonia. Adding these women to the picture changes the dynamics of the political power struggle in the mid-to-late 280s.</p> 2022-02-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Waldemar Heckel https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-coskun The Regnal Years of Antigonos Gonatas 2021-07-03T09:07:54+02:00 Altay Coskun acoskun@uwaterloo.ca <p>Although the decline of Demetrios I Poliorketes’ rule and the succession by his son Antigonos II Gonatas are well known in principle, inconsistencies in the ancient sources have so far obscured the dynastic chronology. However, difficulties can be overcome, if an inclusive count is applied persistently and if the Armenian version of Eusebios’ Chronicle (Porphyry FGH / BNJ 260 F 3), is preferred over the Greek version: the former ascribes Gonatas 43 regnal years, the latter 44. It can be shown that the latter is part of a tradition implying that Gonatas died in 239/38 instead of 240/39 BCE. As a result, Demetrios I began his final campaign in Asia Minor in 286 or 285, was captured in spring 284, and died in 283/82 BCE, whence Gonatas began counting his regnal years. The latter died in 239 BCE, probably in the later summer, yielding the throne to his son Demetrios II.</p> 2022-02-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Altay Coskun https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-akamatis-hill Transition to the underworld 2021-08-04T10:46:05+02:00 NIKOS AKAMATIS nikakamatis@hotmail.com NADHIRA HILL nyhill@umich.edu <p>In 1979, excavations in the eastern cemetery of Pella brought to light, among other finds, a small clay disc that depicts a three-headed deity. This rare object was found with several vases and figurines that allow its dating in the early Hellenistic period. In this article, after a short description of the find, and an examination of its context, special emphasis is given to the identification of the depicted deity and her most probable relation with the goddess Hekate. The clay disc possibly had a magic-protective character related with the passage of the dead to the underworld.</p> 2021-12-13T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 NIKOS AKAMATIS, NADHIRA HILL https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-molina-agudo Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín 2021-12-11T00:41:45+01:00 Antonio Ignacio Molina Marín miprofeignacio@hotmail.com Mario Agudo marioagudo@gmail.com <p>Main Voices: Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín</p> 2022-02-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Antonio Ignacio Molina Marín, Mario Agudo, Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-gomez Alexander and the Ocean 2021-12-11T00:52:52+01:00 Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín franciscoj.gomez@uah.es <p>The aim of Alexander to come to the edges of the world and find the Ocean was a main feature with a key impact in Ancient Greek Geography.The travel to find the edges of the world is clearly linked with cultural perceptions of space that defined the geographical perspective of the campaign and its whole description.</p> 2022-02-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-antela Editorial 2021-12-13T19:18:25+01:00 Borja Antela Borja.Antela@uab.cat <p>Editorial of <em>Karanos </em>4 (2021)</p> 2022-02-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Borja Antela https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-molina Review of Hatzopoulos, Ancient Macedonia, Berlin–Boston, De Gruyter, 2020, 241 pp. [ISBN 9783110718645]. 2021-12-11T00:39:46+01:00 Ignacio Molina miprofeignacio@hotmail.com <p>Review of Miltiades B.
