From the life of Alexander the Great

There are many legends about Alexander the Great. We will tell you one interesting fact from the life of this outstanding commander and ruler.

Despite his philosophical upbringing, Alexander the Great, unlike Marcus Aurelius (the later and also great Roman emperor), was not distinguished by solitary reflections. He loved feasts and had incredible orgies.

One night, he announced to everyone present that he would give a great reward to the one who drank the most wine. The public got down to business, and the next day 36 of Alexander's guests died.

So human greed and intemperance have led to the stupid death of so many people.
