Zur Handlung: Im Frühling des Jahres 324 v. Chr. erreicht Alexander mit den Resten seines Heeres Susa. Alexander hält ein fürchterliches Strafgericht unter Statthaltern, Richtern und Steuerverwaltern ab, die seine lange Abwesenheit in Indien zur Bereicherung ausgenutzt hatten. Unter den Makedoniern in der Truppe Alexanders behauptet ein Soldat, der aus Ekbatana kommt, von dort aus rückten dreißigtausend junge Perser, in makedonische Rüstung eingekleidet und in allen Übungen der Phalanx geschult, an. Die Makedonier fürchten, Alexander vertraue ihnen, seinen Landsleuten, nicht mehr. Phason, einer ihrer Hauptleute, vernimmt das dumpfe Grollen des Aufruhrs. Probleme werden auf der Stelle mit dem Schwert gelöst. Phason tötet den Soldaten, der die Nachricht überbrachte. Alexander heiratet Stateira, Tochter des Dareios.

Arrhidäos, zwei Jahre jünger als Alexander, ist Sohn des Königs Philipp und einer thessalischen Tänzerin...
