Historical background


MACEDONIA - KINGDOM OF MACEDONIA - Antigonus

(323-301 BC)

Coining the name and type of Alexander III the Great

After the death of Philip III in 316 BC, the power was widely disputed between Olympias, mother of Alexander, Alexander IV and Successors, especially Cassandra and Antigone. Antigonus appears on the political scene in 321 BC by crushing Eumenes, satrap of Cappadocia, who was assassinated by Antigonus in 316 BC From the following year, between Antigone in fight against Seleucus, Ptolemy, Lysimachus and Cassander. Antigone occupies Syria and proclaims the freedom of the Greek cities in 314 BC Antigonus and his son Demetrius fought in Gaza. A peace that excludes Seleucus was signed in 311 BC In 306, Demetrius won the naval victory of Salamis in Cyprus. Antigone takes the title of King, imitated by other Diadoques. Finally, Antigone is defeated and killed at the battle of Ipsos in 301 BC.
