Alexander enters Persepolis – and then has it destroyed. The greatest city in the world (probably) at the time and he not only allows it to be torn to shreds, he allows the inhabitants to be massacred, raped and finally he personally sets fire to the Royal Palace.
Meanwhile, back in Greece, the Spartan king Agis III is trying his luck with a revolution against Macedonian rule and he tries to get our old friend Demosthenes to support him.

The Music: We want to get down on our knees and worship the amazing and talented composer who offered us the use of one of his amazing tracks, “Hero”, as our theme music: Jofre Horta.
