    Pompey was his to kill. It was presumptuous of the Egyptian boy king not to simply hold him in custody. Also the manner of execution offended him, he most likely would have granted Pompey a clean quick death by stabbing him with a sword, letting him die like a soldier.

          He survived Sulla's prescriptions just barely and probably felt that others would feel grateful for being spared as he had been. His mistake was not killing at least some of the rebellious senators to give them a reason to feel endebted.

                Athenians largely wouldn't have considered him Greek, which is where the confusion comes from, but from our conception of the term "Greek" today he was certainly Greek.

                wrong.
                the litmus test for being greek was speaking greek (fluently, as a native)
                if he spoke greek as a native language, which he did, he would've been considered greek in every greek territory.

                incidentally, its from this litmus test that we get the word "barbarian".
                there is an ancient greek expression, "πας μη Ελλην, βαρβαρος" (written here without accents as i don't have a polytonic keyboard installed)
                it translates as "everyone who isn't greek is a barbarian". the original meaning of barbarian was literally "someone who doesn't speak greek".

            Alexander died in his 30s, cut him some slack. He built a shitload of cities and had his generals intermarry into Persian nobility, Seleucus was the only one who kept his Persian wife and it helped him secure the east proving the logic was sound.

    It's almost certainly propaganda. Even contemporary historians agree that Caesar probably came with joy that his enemy (a living legend surpassing his own who utterly defeated him in their first battle BTW) was killed, but feigning offense gave him the upper hand in negotiating with (and later overthrowing) Egypt's leadership. Romans were snakes.
