A similar collection is the Syriac one made by Gregory bar-Hebraeus (1226-1286), which is too late to be evidence for any process of transmission from Greek, but useful as an example of the genre in Syriac. It includes pithy and profitable sayings by thinkers including Socrates, Aristotle, Alexander, Plato and Diogenes.

The most recent survey of Arabic Alexander Romances (Samir 1998) ends in a similar aporia as to the existence of an Arabic version of Pseudo-Callisthenes. 45 (v). Another small piece of evidence for a possible Arabic translation of the Romance is as follows. P. 46 It seems to be translated from the Syriac. Its existence implies the existence of a full Arabic translation from which this is excerpted by Ibn al-Faqih.

Polignac has developed this aspect of Alexander by drawing attention to his role in Mas’udi as a builder of cities. He is supposed to have built Hamadan, and to have provided it, for protection, with the large stone lion that is still to be seen there. Even more importantly (and in this case correctly), he is known as the builder of Alexandria. His role here is again as a bringer and defender of order. His descent in the diving bell is located in the harbour of Alexandria, and its purpose is not, as in the Greek Romance (recensions beta and later), to explore the Ocean and discover its mysteries, but to discover its dangers and to protect the city from them.
