On both flanks were the cavalry. [[Bessus]] commanded the left flank with the [[Bactria]]ns, [[Dahae]] cavalry, [[Arachosia]]n cavalry, [[Persia]]n cavalry, [[Elam|Susian]] cavalry, [[Cadusii|Cadusian]] cavalry, and [[Scythians]]. Chariots were placed in front with a small group of Bactrians. [[Mazaeus]] commanded the right flank with the [[Syria]]n, [[Medes|Media]]n, [[Mesopotamia]]n, [[Parthia]]n, [[Sacia]]n, [[Tapuria]]n, [[Hyrcania]]n, [[Caucasian Albania]]n, [[Sacesinia]]n, [[Cappadocia]]n, and [[Armenia]]n cavalry. The Cappadocians and Armenians were stationed in front of the other cavalry units, and led the attack. The Albanian and Sacesinian cavalry were sent around to flank the Macedonian left.

The Macedonians were divided into two, with the right side of the army falling under the direct command of Alexander, and the left to [[Parmenion]].<ref>Hanson 2001, p. 61.</ref> Alexander fought with his [[Companion cavalry]]. With it were the [[Paionia]]n, and Macedonian light cavalry. The mercenary cavalry was divided into two groups, with the veterans being stationed on the flank of the right, and the rest being put in front of the Agrians and Macedonian archers which were stationed next to the phalanx. Parmenion was stationed on the left with the [[Thessalia]]n, Greek mercenary, and [[Thracia]]n cavalry units. There they were to pull off a holding maneuver while Alexander landed the decisive blow from the right.

On the right-center of the formation were Cretan mercenaries. Behind them was a group of Thessalian cavalry under Phillip, and [[Achaea (ancient region)|Achaean]] mercenaries. To their right was another part of the allied Greek cavalry. From there came the phalanx, which was placed into a double-line. Outnumbered over 5:1 in cavalry, with their line surpassed by over a mile, it seemed inevitable that the Macedonians would be flanked by the Persians. The second line were given orders to deal with any flanking units should the situation arise. This second line consisted of mostly mercenaries.
