Demetrius devoted his life to fighting for this cause, and in doing so was given the title Saviour God by the Athenians.He was a resourceful soldier, an inventor of weapons, as well as brave and handsome-small wonder he dazzled the Ancient World with his brilliance. For political reasons he had no less than three wives at one time, although there was only one woman he loved-his mistress, Lamia. Alfred Duggan has captured the cultural climate of the times-The Silver Age of Greece-a world alive with new ideas from sculpture to philosophy, and new indomitable men, such as Demetrius.
