About Hephaestion

Hephaestion (Greek: Ἡφαιστίων Hephaistion; c. 356 BC – 324 BC), son of Amyntor, was a Macedonian nobleman and a general in the army of Alexander the Great. He was "... by far the dearest of all the king's friends; he had been brought up with Alexander and shared all his secrets."[2] This friendship lasted throughout their lives, and was compared, by others as well as themselves, to that of Achilles and Patroclus.
