There are 3 possible settings for this 'Alexander and the water in the helmet' story with slight variations in the details.
In the biographies I have read, the most commonly accepted version is Arrian's - he's the most reliable of the sources. However, I wanted to acknowledge the ambiguity of the time and place of this story, so I had them all included and kept the desert vaguely Central Asian.
Alexander's veil is a nod to American illustrator Tom Lovell's painting of this story in a series for the National Geographic.
