The following notes are meant to contribute to the debate on the whereabouts of the Indian Aornos conquered by Alexander the Great. The article presents some new viewpoints from both field archaeology and literary sources. The integrated approach of historical geography, literary exegesis, and field archaeology can be particularly fructuous when the archaeology contribution is based – as in this case - on sound and reliable stratigraphic information. The ancient geography angle is approached in this article from the hodological viewpoint, which may give new answers to old problems.
