Final Jeopardy Explanation – Friday, December 8 2023

Before visiting Achilles’ tomb, Alexander the Great famously threw his spear onto the ground in Asia and declared the continent “Spear-won.” This symbolic act represented his claim to Asia and his ambition for conquest. Alexander, a keen admirer of Achilles and the Homeric epics, sought to emulate the legendary hero’s glory and valor.

His visit to Achilles’ tomb and this dramatic gesture of claiming Asia by throwing his spear were expressions of his deep connection to the mythic past and his own aspirations for greatness and conquest. This moment is often cited as a reflection of Alexander’s bold character and his vision of creating a vast empire that would blend the cultures of East and West.
