1 Apama was actually the wife, not the sister, of Seleucus.
2 Cf. the similar statements of Xenophon (Anab. I. ii. 7-8).

4 The provisions of the treaty as given by Livy (XXXVII. xlv; cf. Iv) say nothing of any such obligation, nor does Polybius mention it. In xxxvii. 7 below Livy again speaks of grain (and now money) owed under the treaty. It may have been taken for granted that Antiochus owed supplies to the Romans until the treaty was formally ratified.
5 Many of the place-names in the following sections are doubtful, some  by reason of corruptions in the text, some, probably, because Livy did not understand his sources, while others are not mentioned elsewhere. I have been content in general to repeat the  names as they are found in the Latin text I have followed, realizing that beyond question many of them are wrong.The route of the Romans can be followed more easily on the map than through notes. As one traces their course one wonders whether their dominating motive, in selecting the line of  march, was the topography of the country, the desire to come to grips with the Galatians as soon as possible, or the profits which quickly began to come in. (See Map 3.)
6 Livy generally uses the Latin term modius in reference to quantities of grain (XXXI. xix. 2, etc.); here he more appropriately uses the Greek measure. The medimnus was the approximate equivalent of six modii.
7 B.C. 189
