The Alexander Mosaic, perhaps one of the most famous images of Alexander of Macedon and Darius of Persia, is a c. 100 BCE Roman floor mosaic found in Pompeii. Traditionally the mosaic is believe to depict the battle of Issus, when Alexander first defeated Darius and his troops in 333 BCE, however this is nothing to say that it doesn’t instead represent the battle of Gaugamela, in 331 BCE, when Alexander routed Darius’ army and sent the Persian king fleeing. Darius would later be killed by his own men and Alexander would ride into Babylon and proclaim himself King of all Asia.
