Historical background


SYRIA - Seleucid Kingdom - ANTIOCHUS VII Sidetes

(138-129 BC)

Antiochus VII was the second son of Demetrius I and brother Demetrius II Nicator. His nickname Sidetes comes from the city of Side, where he was raised. He married his sister Cleopatra, daughter of Ptolemy VI, after eliminating Tryphon who had murdered Antiochus VI Dionysus. During his reign, he had to struggle against the Jews were emancipated and refused to pay tribute, and against its powerful neighbors Parthians who had captured his brother, Demetrius II Nicator. Defeated by the Parthians of Phraates II (138-127 AC)., He died during a brawl, leaving a son, the future Antiochus IX Cyzicenus.
