However, Gabinius sent before him Marcus Antonius, and followed himself
with his whole army; but for the select body of soldiers that were about
Antipater, and another body of Jews under the command of Malichus and Pitholaus,
these joined themselves to those captains that were about Marcus Antonius,
and met Alexander; to which body came Oabinius with his main army soon
afterward; and as Alexander was not able to sustain the charge of the enemies'
forces, now they were joined, he retired. But when he was come near to
, he was forced to fight, and lost six thousand men in the battle;
three thousand of which fell down dead, and three thousand were taken alive;
so he fled with the remainder to Alexandrium.
