King Antiochus VII Euergetes Sidetes

Antiochos VII (reigned 139–129 BC) was the last of the Seleucid kings who attempted to reclaim the once-mighty empire. His reign was occupied by fruitless battles and ephemeral victories; by the end, ancient Syria was his only domain. Like his father, Demetrios I Soter (reigned 161–150 BC), he was killed by rivals.

    Splendid rendering of a beautiful coin. This king was the third (and the last) husband of notorious Cleopatra Thea. Needless to say – his life was full of adventures and he was killed at a battle-field? Another wonderful addition to my Hellenistic royal collection.
