[4] And Menander, in one of his comedies, 1 evidently refers jestingly to this marvel:—
How Alexander-like, indeed, this is; and if I seek some one,
Spontaneous he'll present himself; and if I clearly must
Pass through some place by sea, this will lie open to my steps.
Alexander himself; however, made no such prodigy out of it in his letters, but says that he marched by way of the so-called Ladder, and passed through it, setting out from Phaselis.
