Abstract :
Unlike in mainland Greece and Asia Minor, Hellenistic culture in Central Asia has left rather few portraits. Nevertheless, they are to be found on small-form objects, especially coins but also metalwork, carved gems, terracottas, carved ivory, etc. This article attempts to trace the popular image of Alexander the Great in small-form works found in archaeological sites in Central Asia.
