Example text

The fierce tribes locked in the mountains proved at first intractable to outside rulers, but a series of kings added the region to their other holdings and ruled successfully there (Archelaus I and II; Polemo I and II; Antiochus IV; and King Alexander). The gentler land of Cilicia Pedias supported numerous small rulers as well, and after expulsion of the Seleucids it did see the rise of one royal dynasty, 19 Late Hellenistic Dynasties that of Tarcondimotus. In the Amanus range, tribesmen proved nearly as difficult as those in Tracheia to control from without; they favoured the milder Parthians over the Romans, but independence over both.

Nevertheless, during the centuries when kings ruled, they did so in their own right and they ruled well. By studying in detail the individuals, their family interconnections, and their dealings with other dynasts as well as with Rome or Parthia, this book seeks to reveal facets of a crucial period of Near Eastern history as Greek control gradually yielded to Roman or Iranian. In this book the arrangement is both chronological and geographical, since the themes pursued fall naturally into two periods, both clearly reflected in regional dynastic politics.

The process of unification under fewer, more powerful dynastic houses continued through this period and culminated in the decades after Actium. Across the Hellespont, Roman provincial territory existed by late in the second century BC, after Rome's assumption of the former Attalid kingdom as 'Asia' (see ยง i). Not until more than half a century later came acquisition of the adjacent Kingdom of Bithynia, about 74 BC. The Aegean seaboard developed its cities on an accelerated basis with Roman favour after removal of the threat presented by Mithradates Eupator.
