Newly erected statue of Alexander The Great vandalised in Athens

A newly erected statue of warrior-king Alexander the Great of Macedon  in central Athens erected on 17 April was vandalised on Tuesday, less than a month after its unveiling, according to Greek media reports.

The statue was painted with graffiti slogans stating that Alexander The Great was a killer

It turns out that the Athenians still haven’t forgotten the battle of Cheronea in 338 BC when , between the Macedonians led by Phillip of Macedon and an alliance of city-states led by Athens  and Thebes. The battle   resulted in a decisive victory for the Macedonians.
