Alexander the Great
the king of Macedonia, the great conqueror; probably represented in Daniel by the "belly of brass" ( Daniel 2:32 ), and the leopard and the he-goat ( 7:6 ; Daniel 11:3 Daniel 11:4 ). He succeeded his father Philip, and died at the age of thirty-two from the effects of intemperance, B.C. 323. His empire was divided among his four generals.
