The Hellenistic Age Podcast

The crisis in Egypt enabled Antiochus III to launch another invasion south into Ptolemaic territory, kickstarting the Fifth Syrian War (202-195) that finally delivered Coele Syria into Seleucid hands after almost a century of conflict. Antiochus’ ambition to claim the territories of Seleucus I leads him to campaign in Europe, placing him on a collision course with the Roman Republic.
