Tomb of Alcetas

At the grave of Alketas. He was an infantry-general who’s brother, Perdiccas, figured in wars that broke out after the death of Alexander the Great (Wars of the Diadochi). This brother was murdered by this officers at the river Nile, and Alketas was declared an outlaw. He had esxcaped with his troops to Termessos, and though there was disagreement between younger and elder factions if handing him over to Antigonus was acceptable he committed suicide. The youngers’ faction put him in a grave within the city. It has been damaged by grave robbers and treasure hunters, some parts remain.
