Abstract: Scholars almost universally agree that there were two tendencies among the Successors of Alexander the Great: while some are assumed to have aimed at gaining control of Alexander’s entire empire, others supposedly were content with a part of it. This paper will question the foundations of this communis opinio, as both Diodorus Siculus and Cornelius Nepos explicitly state that all the Successors wanted to lay their hands on the entire realm and no ancient author mentions any separatist tendencies. A new assessment might show that many of the alleged signs of separatism in the early Successor era can also be interpreted in other ways.
