Note: "Portraits of Alexander tend to follow the model created by his favorite sculptor, Lysippus..," according to the Oxford Classical Dictionary (3rd ed. revised). "His personality is far more elusive, thanks to the tendency in antiquity to adduce him as a moral example of good or evil and the propensity of moderns to endue him with the qualities they would admire in themselves. His reputation for invincibility, which he studiously fostered, has been a source of fascination..., mostly for ill. The process began when he died (10 June 323 BC) after a ten-day illness (which contemporaries ascribed to poison), and the marshals who sought to emulate him rapidly dismembered his empire."
