Alexander the Great, did not die of an arrow.
Hi there, seems to be some incorrect information about the dead of alexander the great at lecture 24. Its mentioned here he died during a seige in combat.
I only hear from other historians he died of a supposed fever, potential poisoning in his bed.
Please look into thank you
