Politics and world events

  • With 15,000 men, Alexander the Great subdues the Thracians , who rose after the death of Philip II . Then he moves over the Balkan Mountains to the Danube to defeat the Triballer , whose ruler, however, retreats to the Danube island Peuke.
  • Over the upper Morava and Paionien, Alexander moves against the Illyrians , whom he defeats at Pelion on Lake Ohrid.
  • While Alexander fights in the north, Thebes rises against Macedonian rule and drives out the Macedonian garrison. Athens joins the uprising at Demosthenes' instigation . Alexander rushes up from Illyria and subdues Thebes, kills 6,000 inhabitants, sells 30,000 into slavery and razes the city to the ground. After this example, the other Greek cities submit and pledge their allegiance to Alexander in Corinth .

Science and culture

  • Aristotle arrives in Athens where he founds a school, the Lykeion . Presumably during this time he wrote the book Poetics as a basis for lectures , which deals with poetry and its genres.
