The purpose of this study is to identify, classify and analize all the contributions about Alexander the Great and the Macedonians recovered inside the lexicon Suda, the Xth century Byzantine Greek encyclopedia. The research focalizes also the attention on the sources the lexicon has used, analyzing the connection between the authors used by the encyclopedia and the notices the lexicon has referred, in order to discuss the modifications the lexicon has operated during the transmission of the texts. The discussion on the entries has involved all the aspects of the theme: from the history of the Argeads to the deeds of Alexander in Greece, Asia, India, to the inquiry into the Companions of the king and the women that have shared with him his voyage or that have been part of his family. The results of the inquiry confirm the possibility of a revision of Alexander's image under the byzantine's empire and open up to a new interpretation of his figure in that context.
