Historical background


SYRIA - SELEUKID KINGDOM - ANTIOCHUS III THE GREAT

(223-187 BC)

Antiochus III, second son of Seleucus II, succeeded his brother Seleucus III in 223 BC. He first had to put down the revolt of Molon, a satrap of Media who had revolted and was only eliminated in 220 BC Having made the mistake of entrusting the military command of Asia Minor to his uncle Achaios, the latter revolted and Antiochus did not overcome the revolt until after the capture of Sardis in 214 BC. .-C. The decapitated usurper, he then restored Seleucid power in Parthia and Bactria. After Philip V was defeated at Cynoscephali and welcomed the exiled Hannibal, he became an implacable enemy of the Romans. After a first series of victories, he was finally defeated at Thermopylae and Magnesia in 189 BC. He had to sign the Peace of Apamea the following year, consecrating Roman hegemony and the end of Seleucid domination in Asia Minor, leaving Pergamum the arbiter of the situation. He was assassinated in 187 BC.
