Too much focus was given to Gaugamela. The Persians were depicted as mostly disorganised, but in reality were a formidable, organised force that required Alexander's great skill to defeat them. Many of the characters, including Cleitus & Darius III, the Persian king, were shown as young, but in reality were older men in their 40s & 50s. Alexander is shown as wounded in the battle at Hydaspes, but in reality, he was wounded in another engagement in India. There are many generalisations regarding Babylon, where imagery shows a combination of Assyrian, Babylonian, & Persian themes in the mostly Babylonian city that was one of the capitals of the Achaemenid Empire. Despite some fairly noticeable historical inaccuracies, some often less known facts are there, including that Ptolemy wrote that likely did exist & probably did burn in Alexandria centuries later when the famous Great Library burned.
