Alexander the Great – the king of Macedonia, the great conqueror; probably represented in Daniel by the “belly of brass” (Dan. 2:32), and the leopard and the he-goat (7:6; 11:3,4).

He succeeded his father Philip, and died at the age of thirty-two from the effects of intemperance, B.C. 323.

His empire was divided among his four generals.
