Résumé : As far as narrative comparison on an Indo-European level is concerned, similarities between Greek and Indian materials often prove to be successful. In this article, we have focused on parallel patterns between Paris-Alexander, prince of Troy and Helen's kidnapper, and Rāvaṇa, the rākṣasa-king of Laṅkā, enemy of Rāma and Sītā's kidnapper. Though the parallel, on a linguistic level, between the nouns rākṣasa and ᾽Αλέξανδρος has proven to be fruitless, common singular patterns and narrative structures between the two characters can be established, and confirm the close bond between Greek and Indian epic materials.
