From here he moved west to a more hazardous encounter with a group of tough Illyrian tribesmen. While still engaged against them (late summer 335), he was greeted by the most alarming news from Greece. Despite the League of Corinth,s reluctant cooperation, despite all the talk of a Panhellenic crusade, no sooner had Alexander vanished into Thrace than a resistance movement, led by Thebes and Athens, went into action. urv ,o uoIlEurssESSEaql roy pe8uerre zvroueq 'sn1el1y rlll,trr lluep peq eq se 1sn( '1srrg 'urlrl IIEJrou prp Leqa 'eroteq re^au se pepaeu ararrr errd11 puE ecErqJ ur padeldsrp per{ repuexelv leql sseualrsrcap pue 'dlrnue8ut 'peads aq; 'euorq] ueruoPecEw aql roJ elsplpuec pe{caq-Ieel) alqe}cp -ard e sE^\ pue ecaar) ureqlnos ro1 elled qel peq 'seccrpra4 rer{lorq rapla s,drpqcl }o uos 'seludury '>lsrr }e sen peaqa8prrq aurluodsellaH Jrar{} :acro} acuelpe uuruopacew eq} uo arnsserd uouruew 'lereua8 fueuactatu d,reaq Surttnd servr 'sapoqA ]o 'ersy uI 'elsrecl (q petlddns plo8 lI Jo auros {eerD luerlluq e /lIoAeJ uado ur lno etuoc 'sueqlv ruor; troddns IEIOuEUUqulv\ pEq seqeqJ 'eqnuEc er{l rEeu suBrcPrqJ pIIA 1suI33EalllEq E ur lno padrr* ueeq peq ecrol l-reuortlpedxe eloqrvr'srrl puu rapue 'ssaultr*ede -xaIV e ^q pere^{ap pue pa8alp peure}spoolq tBI{} peer{ e o1 s8urq} seueqlsoureg dq pa8euuru-e8els 'lroder E sp^/v\ A)V CII,SINAIIAH {HI R IVAUD AHI UIICINI/XEIV Alexander and His Legacy the walls of Thebes.
