The elephant, introduced to the Greco-Macedonians by way of Alexander's conquests, would prove to be one of the most iconic elements of the Hellenistic period. From the use of war elephants in battles like Ipsus and Zama,  the scientific insights of authors like Aristotle and Megasthenes, and symbols of power for the Hellenistic rulers, we will explore the rise and fall of one of the ancient world's most interesting subjects.
