The Macedonian army, in assembly to consider the future, offered Perdikkas the kingship, but he demurred. Our key source here, Quintus Curtius Rufus of the first half of the first century AD, may well have inserted an echo of the posturings of early Roman emperors, especially Tiberius in AD 14 (Curt. 6; Badian 1962; Bosworth 1971: 128). His whole stance as the guardian of Alexander's interests required hesitation, for Alexander's widow was pregnant and might produce a son and heir.

Only a selection of a city's public documents will ever have been inscribed and it is worth considering why some become civic monuments. If we look at the Teian texts discussed above, it is evident that their content is varied ± education, piracy and royal cult ± but in each case, directly or indirectly, someone is remembered and honoured by the act of inscription, Polythros, the contributors, the king. This is not to suggest that all inscription is honorific but in a culture in which the rich are expected to perform services for their city honour is highly prized and may consequently help to shape our image of a city.
