The present study looks at the context in which Alexander’s patrius sermo occurs in Curtius’ [Q. Curtius Rufus’] account of the Philotas affair and what its significance may be, as far as Makedonian mode of speech is concerned. When Curtius’ account of the Philotas affair is read, one cannot but notice, detailed narrative, colored with dramatic overtones. However, before analyzing Curtius’ account of the Philotas affair, it would be of considerable interest to see first what space has been allotted to this affair by Arrian, Plutarch, Diodoros, and Justin.
