As a youth, he studied under Epictetus, and later strove in his literary works to emulate the great soldier-historian, Xenophon.

Considered by many to be the most important work on Alexander the Great, Arrians The Anabasis of Alexander is an accurate and thorough account of the Macedonian conquerors military exploits. Writing in the 2nd Century, nearly 400 years after the death of Alexander, Arrian had access to many important works which are now lost. He took information from the contemporary works of Callisthenes, Onesicritus, Nearchus, Aristobulus, and most significantly from the biography of Alexander by Ptolemy, one of Alexanders generals and possibly his half-brother. The text focuses mainly on Alexanders military history, and includes very little on his wider political views or personal life.
