Appian, Syrian Wars (ed. Horace White), CHAPTER VII (search)
er Carthage, he sent victims for sacrifice to the Capitol in advance of his coming, and then made his appearance in court clad in festive garments instead of the mournful and humble garb customary to those under accusation, whereby he made a profound impression on all and predisposed them favorably as to a high-minded citizen conscious of his own rectitude. When he began to speak he made no mention of the accusation against him, but detailed the events of his life, what he had done, the B.C. 187 wars he had waged for his country, how he had carried on each, and how often he had been victorious. It delighted the listeners to hear this grand discourse. When he came to the overthrow of Carthage he was roused to the highest pitch of eloquence and filled the multitude, as well as himself, with noble rage, saying, "On this very day, O citizens, I won the victory and laid at you feet Carthage, that had lately been such an object of terror to you. Now I am going up to the Capitol to offer th

CHAPTER VIII The Successors of Antiochus the Great -- Antiochus Epiphanes -- Antiochus Eupator -- Demetrius Soter -- Tigranes, King of Armenia, conquers Syria -- Pompey seizes it for the Romans -- Also Phœnicia and Palestine -- Later History of Syria Y.R. 567 Afterward, on the death of Antiochus the Great, his B.C. 187 son Seleucus succeeded him. He gave his son Demetrius as a hostage in place of his brother Antiochus. When the latter arrived at Athens on his way home, Seleucus was assassinated as the result of a conspiracy of a certain Heliodorus, one of the court officers. When Heliodorus sought to possess himself of the government he was driven out by Eumenes and Attalus, who installed Antiochus therein in order to secure his good-will; for, by reason of certain bickerings, they had already grown suspicious of the Romans. Thus Antiochus, the son of Antiochus the Great, ascended the throne of Syria. He was called Epiphanes (the Illustrious) by the Syrians, b

B.C. 246 Callinicus (the Triumphant), succeeded Theos as king of Y.R. 528 Syria. After Seleucus his two sons, Seleucus and Antiochus, B.C. 226 succeeded in the order of their age. As Seleucus was sickly and poor and unable to command the obedience of the army, he was poisoned by a court conspiracy in the Y.R. 530 second year of his reign. His brother was Antiochus the B.C. 224 Great, who went to war with the Romans, of whom I have 567 written above. He reigned thirty-seven years. I have B.C. 187 already spoken of his two sons, Seleucus and Antiochus, both of whom ascended the throne. The former reigned twelve years, but feebly and without success by reason of his father's misfortune. Antiochus (Epiphanes) reigned not quite twelve years, in the course of which he captured Artaxias the Armenian and made an expedition into Egypt Y.R. 579 against Ptolemy VI., who had been left an orphan with one B.C. 175 brother. While he was encamped near Alexandria, Popilius came to him as Roman amba
