Буцефал / Bucephalus
The name given to the charger of Alexander the Great. The horse was untameable, would allow none but its master to ride him, was afraid of its own shadow and would only gallop towards the S^n. It would kneel before Alexander and no amount of galloping could quench his fire. It was killed during a bloody battle and the King built a town around its tomb. Bucephalus symbolizes the servant of a single master whom he serves with deathless devotion and whose ambitions he shares, perhaps the more deeply of the two, and even incites. Like Bucephalus, restive or bucking at the sight of his own shadow, Alexander could not live in the shadow of his father, Philip of Macedon. Aristotle's pupil needed horizons wider than those of the petty kingdom of his birth. He needed a blaze of glory and, just as Bucephalus would only be ridden towards the Sun, so his incredible expedition across Persia and to the borders of India led him towards the sunrise. Creature of the Sun, all his fire was kept for great adventures and he shines out like a star in the sky.
