They say that Alexander razed Thebes to the ground and, sparing only priests and priestesses, enslaved the rest; and they say that he protected the house of the poet Pindar and the descendants of Pindar from harm, out of reverence for Pindar -- so says Arrian the historian in book 1 of his Anabasis of Alexander.
