Arrian's iAnabasis of Alexander/i in seven books is the best account we have of Alexander's adult life. iIndica,/i a description of India and of Nearchus's voyage therefrom, was to be a supplement. A student of Epictetus, Arrian took notes at his lectures and published them (in eight books of which we have four, iThe Discourses/i) and also the iEncheiridion/i or Manual of Epictetus. Both works are available in the Loeb Epictetus edition. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Arrian is in two volumes.
