The work is a copy of the head of a work from 330 BC attributed to Lysippos - doubtless the statue of Alexander with a bronze lance mentioned by Plutarch (Moralia, 360 d).
It is, nevertheless, the portrait of Alexander that comes closest to the work of Lysippos, a Greek artist of the fourth century BC.
The Azara Herm and the bronze Br 370 are copies of the same original, created by Lysippos around 330 BC.

323 B.C. Van De Mieroop speaks in a grandfatherly tone--authoritative, familiar, stern--and yet with a twinkle in his eye and the precision of a surgeon's scalpel which keeps you leaning forward on the edge of your seat.
Granted, the book reads as a college textbook, and indeed is the compilation of xeroxed notes used for an introductory undergraduate class on the ancient history of Mesopotamia and Asia Minor.
