Historical background


BACTRIA - Bactrian kingdom - Antimachus I THEOS

(174-165 BC)

Antimachus I Theos is the contemporary Demetrius I (200-185 BC), of Euthydemos II (185-180 BC), son of Eurthydème I (230-200 BC - C.), Agathocles (190-180 BC), Pantaleon (185-180 BC), of Apollodotus I (174-165 BC) and Demetrius II (175-170 BC). I Antimachus seems to disappear when I Eucratides took power and unified Bactria by eliminating its competitors.
