Bucephalus Horse

19 Aug

Sorry, not for sale.

Bucephalus or Buchephalas (Ancient Greek: Βουκέφαλος, from βούς bous, “ox” and κεφαλή kephalē, “head” meaning “ox-head”) (c. 355 BC – June 326 BC) was Alexander the Great’s horse and one of the most famous actual horses of antiquity.[1] Ancient accounts[2] state that Bucephalus died after the Battle of the Hydaspes in 326 BC, in what is now modern Pakistan, and is buried in Jalalpur Sharif outside of Jhelum, Pakistan.
