Transcript

  • 1. The Battle of Jhelum (Hydaspes) 326 BC Alexander and Military Matters
  • 2. Why didn’t Alexander stop at this point? • To safeguard what he’d already conquered • Pothos – a longing to go further than anyone else and just find out what was there • Further conquest because he knew Indian princes were disunited – wealth • May have thought that by going further east he would reach the eastern ocean and the very edge of the world • A desire to make a journey o geographical and scientific discovery
