Horses were notoriously frightened of elephants and, after rallying, Demetrius' command was unable to approach the centre of the battlefield and influence events there.

The battle's outcome was decisive, Seleucus becoming leader of Syria and Mesopotamia, Ptolemy king of Egypt. Stephen Nutt Diodorus , 20. 113–21. 2. Plutarch...

This was matched by a charismatic heroic temperament schooled in magnanimity, justice, and honor. Alexander himself...

...the medieval period. During the battle, Kerbogha does appear to have made a number of tactical mistakes; however, the key factor seems to have been the zealous momentum of the Christian assault, during which contemporaries claimed that they were supported by Saint George, Saint Demetrius, and Saint Mercurius.
