Wikipedia biography.

Greek language page (Must have special fonts!)

An extensive, multi-frame biography in modern Greek. I can't get it to render in Greek.

Something else in Greek. . I will load those fonts and try to decipher this stuff someday—not that my Modern Greek is up to snuff.

Plutarch's Alexander (Russian translation). Oleg Palayda has entered translations of all of Plutarch's lives. But what is the Olympias page about?

Web Archive: Icelandic mad-libs involving Alexander the Great (yes, it sounds unbelievable). Maybe it's some kind of quiz.

Hebrew: 308 Cubits under the Sea. On the Alexander Romance. Scholarly, it seems. Apart from the bibliography—English and other works—it's nothing but "?" if you don't have Hebrew fonts.

Bibelns lara om Kristus. Unknown language (Swedish?), but from "Nordic literature online since 1992." The passage clearly deals with the visit to Siwa.
