 Alexander the Great - Sources
By far the most important of these is the “Anabasis of Alexander,” or the History of Alexander the Great’s Campaigns.
Though it may be looked upon as a supplement to the “Anabasis,” Arrian often refers in the one work to the other.

 Arrian Criticism and Essays
His military experiences informed a variety of historical writings, including his history of Alexander the Great, the Anabasis Alexandri, which is probably the best known of his writings.
Hamilton fas focused on the Anabasis, noting that Arrian intended the work to be his masterpiece.
Yet the work is flawed, Hamilton maintains, by Arrian's sometimes “narrow” approach to the topic and lacks a sense of appreciation for larger issues.

 Ptolemy I Soter’s self-promotion in his history of Alexander the Great
Another one of Ptolemy’s deed was the brazen theft of Alexander’s corpse and its eventual relocalization to Memphis, then Alexandria.[3] But the most important part of his career to historians was the now-lost history he wrote of his tribulations with Alexander.
This is definitely the sort of story that a man would be admired for in those days, and in Roman times we know of the spolia opima given to the victor of just that sort of combat.
Maybe this appealed to the military leader in Arrian and that is why he put this episode in the Anabasis.

The book is entitled The Campaigns of Alexander (Anabasis Alexandri, in the original) and the author is Arrian (Flavius Arrianus Xenophon), a Roman citizen of Greek extraction who lived in the time of Emperor Hadrian early in the second century AD.
Arrian's Anabasis (literally, "journey up the country") took its title from an earlier work, detailing the failed coup attempt of Cyrus the Younger against his brother King Artaxerxes, by Xenophon around 400 BC.
The 10,000 Greek mercenaries under Xenophon fought their way back across Asia Minor, thereby carving their place in history.
