Monument of the meeting between the philosopher Diogenes and Alexander the Great

Monument of the meeting between the philosopher Diogenes and Alexander the Great depicts the famous historical incident of the meeting between Alexander the Great and the cynic philosopher Diogenes. This meeting was special because it was a meeting between the two extremists, Alexander, who symbolized the high educational level and the absolute power and Diogenes, who symbolized the absolute, conscious denial of the authority and supported the austerity and self-sufficiency.
It’s not a coincidence that these meeting took place in Corinth because at this time Corinth was prominent among all the Greek cities, and it resisted to any kind of revolutionary currents in Greek society.
