From alpha 731. Since Alexander (alpha 1121, alpha 1122) did none of the things attributed to him there (and again here), this must be case of mistaken identity. Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.3D = 1.5 Kaibel (the source of alpha 731) allows us to rectify it: "... Alexander the Great. KONON, having defeated the Lakedaimonians in the sea-battle at Knidos [394 BCE]...".
[1] A hundred oxen, notionally.
