Seleucus II, the eldest of Antiochus II and Laodice son, ascended the throne in the same year that Ptolemy III in 246 BC, which coincides with the beginning of the third war in Syria. The Ptolemies and Seleucids between peace is signed this year. Seleucus II, beaten by his brother at Ancyra in 239 BC, in 231 began a campaign against the Parthians and died in 226 BC, the victim of a fall from his horse after a reign of twenty insignificant years.
