The article puts forward new arguments for attributing more passages from Plutarch (Quaest. conv. VIII 9, 3, 734b; Alex. 23, 3-6 and 8; Alex. fort. II 6, 338d) to the Ephemerides of  Alexander the Great than those already collected by Jacoby in FGrHist 117. On the basis of this enlarged corpus of fragments, the article argues that only one text circulated in the  imperial period under the title of Ephemerides and that the portrait of Alexander emerging from it was probably positive, while the hostile emphasis on Alexander’s drinking habits  that characterizes some of the fragments may be due to the authors who preserve them.
