Ipsus was a decisive turning point in the fate of the Antigonids, and indeed their opponents, but it didn’t come out of nothing. In this episode, which I’m artificially going to dub Part 1, we’re going to discuss the manoeuvring leading up to the battle, before getting stuck into the action. Then in Part 2, we’ll get to the aftershocks and implications of the battle.
