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> Christian San Jose Copyright (c) 2021 christian San Jose https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-02-01 2022-02-01 4 13 33 10.5565/rev/karanos.32 Lysimachos, Thrace and Macedon https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-heckel <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> Waldemar Heckel Copyright (c) 2021 Waldemar Heckel https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-02-01 2022-02-01 4 33 45 10.5565/rev/karanos.72 The Regnal Years of Antigonos Gonatas https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-coskun <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> Altay Coskun Copyright (c) 2021 Altay Coskun https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-02-01 2022-02-01 4 49 58 10.5565/rev/karanos.73 Transition to the underworld https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-akamatis-hill <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> NIKOS AKAMATIS NADHIRA HILL Copyright (c) 2021 NIKOS AKAMATIS, NADHIRA HILL https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2021-12-13 2021-12-13 4 59 77 10.5565/rev/karanos.70 Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-molina-agudo <p>Main Voices: Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín</p> Antonio Ignacio Molina Marín Mario Agudo Copyright (c) 2021 Antonio Ignacio Molina Marín, Mario Agudo, Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-02-01 2022-02-01 4 91 97 10.5565/rev/karanos.78 Alexander and the Ocean https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-gomez <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> Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín Copyright (c) 2021 Francisco Javier Gómez Espelosín https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-02-01 2022-02-01 4 91 97 10.5565/rev/karanos.80 Editorial https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-antela <p>Editorial of <em>Karanos </em>4 (2021)</p> Borja Antela Copyright (c) 2021 Borja Antela https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-02-01 2022-02-01 4 4 6 10.5565/rev/karanos.82 Review of Hatzopoulos, Ancient Macedonia, Berlin–Boston, De Gruyter, 2020, 241 pp. [ISBN 9783110718645]. https://revistes.uab.cat/karanos/article/view/v4-molina <p>Review of Miltiades B.
