PERITAS: Greek warrior Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) used greyhounds during his military campaigns. One faithful battle, his favourite greyhound Peritas fought a war elephant. Alexander was so impressed at the faithfulness and bravery of Peritas that he ordered a state funeral for his friend, named a city after him and had a statue erected in his honour in the city square.
