Alexander the Great Quote

Now you fear punishment and beg for your lives, so I will let you free, if not for any other reason so that you can see the difference between a Greek king and a barbarian tyrant, so do not expect to suffer any harm from me. A king does not kill messengers.


As quoted in the Historia Alexandri Magni of Pseudo-Kallisthenes, 1.37.9-13.
