THE “OATH” OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT

(OPIS, 324 BC)


"I wish you now that wars are coming to an end,that you should be all happy in peace.From now on,let all mortals live as one people,in fellowship,for the common prosperity.See the ecumenic world as your homeland,with common laws,where the meritocracy govern regardless of the race.Unlike the narrowminded,I make no distinction between Greeks and barbarians. The origin of the citizens,or the race into which they were born,is of no concern to me.I judge them by one criterion,the individual virtue.

For me any good foreigner is a Greek and any bad Greek is worse than a barbarian.If disputes ever occur among you,you will not resort to weapons,but will solve them in peace.If need be I shall arbitrate between you.Let us see the god not as an autocratic despot,but as the common father of all and thus your conduct will be like the lives of brothers within the same family.

I,on my part,see you all as equal whether you are white or dark-skinned.And I should like you not simply to be subjects of my commonwealth,but members of it and partners.To the best of my ability I shall strive to do what I have promised. This oath,which we have taken tonight with our libations,keep it as a Symbol of Love"


Lord Byron - source : Don Juan (canto III, st.86)
“The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece! Where burning Sappho loved and sung.
Where grew the arts of war and peace, Where Delos rose, and Phoebus sprung!
Eternal summer gilds them yet, But all, except their sun, is set.”
