Epiphanes, and on his death Antiochus X. Eusebes. She was besieged by Tigranes in Syria or Mesopotamia, and either taken and killed by him (Strab. xvi. p.749), or, according to Josephus (J. AJ 13.16.4), relieved by Lucullus' invasion of Armenia. She was the mother of Antiochus XIII. Asiaticus. She is more generally called Selene.
