A Turizm Yayinlari 2000 9757199796 / 9789757199793 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffep (E. Badian). Very light bump to bottom edge of rear board. Else fine. Light stains to front panel of DJ. Else very minor shelfwear to DJ. ; After an introduction of the Royal Necropolis of Sidon, examines the faces and finally the lid of the Alexander Sarcophagus in detail. At the end of the book its decorative style and ornamentation is described. The Alexander Sarcophagus has been a major attraction of the Istanbul Archaeological Museum ever since it was found in the late nineteenth century. Although named after Alexander the Great, the sarcophagus was not his, but was probably that of Abdalonymos, the last king of Sidon (Saida). Abdalonymos owed his throne to Alexander and the latter's close friend and general, Hephaistion. The subject matter of the reliefs decorating the sarcophagus suggests that Abdalonymos was here commemorating his benefactors; the sarcophagus thus takes its name, not from the ruler who commissioned it, but from its iconography; 64 pages
