This podcast explores what happened after Alexander the Great, with a specific focus on the story of the Seleucids- a dynasty which descended from one of Alexander’s generals and came to rule an empire stretching from Anatolia to India. Join us as we examine the Hellenistic world and watch the shifting Seleucid fortunes through the various highs and lows. I aim to continue the story until the end of the Hellenistic world in 10CE, with bonus topics such as myths, lineages, cities and Romans along the way. Currently covering: The reign of Antiochus I Soter (281- 261 BCE).
