  • Why did Thebes revolt?
  • Alexander is dead, I saw it.
  • The Persion King, Darius, had sent gold to the Greek city-states with hope that they would rise against their new Hegemon, in turn disrupting Alexanders invasion of Persia.
  • Because Alexander had been busy with the Siege of Pelium news of him had not reached southern Greece for a long time. A rumour reached thebes that Alex had died. Demosthene, an athenian politition, produced a fake witness who could confirm alexanders death.
  • The Thebans declared revolt by killing two Macedonian officers who had been roaming the city, this was an act of war. It was also the start of the revolt.
