polytheist extractions

Arrian, Anabasis 7.25.6

“Even though Alexander was seriously ill he refused to neglect his religious duties and offered up the appointed sacrifices. Afterwards he had to be carried from the garden back into the palace, and could not meet with his generals who had been waiting outside the door for him. He hardly recognized the men and could not speak, his illness being so extreme.” – Arrian, Anabasis 7.25.6
