This article aims at inquiring the K.J. Beloch’s considerations about the tyranny of Dionysius I of Syracuse, in a specifically dedicated essay as well as in his major work, the Griechische Geschichte, where the Sicilian tyrant is represented quite as a precursor of the politics of Philip II and Alexander the Great. The conclusions of the German scholar are here analyzed in the light of both his historiographical approach and his scientific interests and they are verified on the basis of the reception among his colleagues and in the subsequent investigations on that topic.
