I'm Alexander! No, I'm Alexander!
The lower Issos Mosaic version was done last Autumn.
It illustrates quite nicely how painting techniques can change over a dozen years for better or worse.
Incidentally both figures get used as sundry Seleucid Kings & generals my excuse being a lot of the statuary was modelled on the Alexander look so they would have garbed themselves for war in the same manner.
