2920 Alexander’s Garments. When Alexander the Great entertained the kings and nobles at the court of Persia, he appeared wearing only those garments which had been woven for him by his mother, Olympias, who was the daughter of a chieftain, the wife of a king, and the mother of a conqueror. One commentator said: “Long ago we discarded the garments that were made for us by a loving mother’s hands; and yet, in a certain sense, as to life and character, we are all still wearing the garments that were woven for us by a mother. (C. E. Macartney in Tan, P. L. (1996, c1979). Encyclopedia of 7700 illustrations : A treasury of illustrations, anecdotes, facts and quotations for pastors, teachers and Christian workers.
