Abstract :
The iconography for Alexander’s flying machine, as described in the Alexander Romance, spread throughout Christian Europe. The notion and the elements of the iconography can, however, be traced in early Mesopotamia, Syria/Palestine, Roman and notably Sasanian art. Oxford’s Alfred Jewel may also be a candidate.
