Antiochus X, son of Antiochus IX Cyzicene declared himself king on the death of his father at Arados. He chased his cousin Seleucus VI from Antioch. After the death of the latter in Cilicia (at Mopsus), he still had to face the two brothers of the previous one, Antiochus XI and Philip Philadelphe. The latter two seized Antioch in 93 BC Antiochus XI was killed in the Battle of Antioch. Philip fled and was joined again by one of his brothers, Demetrius. Antiochus X died fighting the Parthians. He had married Cleopatra Selene, wife of his father and his uncle who bore him a son, Antiochus XIII Asiaticus.
