  1. Antiochus

    Antiochus was a Macedonian man that lived during the time of Philip II of Macedon, who ruled from 359 BC-336 BC. He originally came from Orestis, Macedonia. Antiochus served as a military general under Philip II, who gained distinction as one of Philip’s officers. Antiochus was from an upper noble family. His father was probably called Seleucus, his brother was called Ptolemy and probably had a nephew called Seleucus. Antiochus had married a Macedonian woman called Laodice. In about 358 BC Laodice bore Antiochus a son Seleucus I Nicator, who would became a general of Alexander the Great and later founded and became the first king of the Seleucid Empire; she also bore him a daughter, Didymeia. It was pretended, in consequence of a dream which Laodice had, that the god Apollo was the real father of Seleucus. When Seleucus became king, he founded and named sixteen cities in honor of his father, these include the Syrian city of Antioch and the Seleucid Military Outpost, Antioch, Pisidia. Through Seleucus, Antiochus would have thirteen Seleucid kings bearing his name and various monarchs bearing his name from the Kingdom of Commagene. Antiochus would have various descendants through his son from the 3rd century BC until the 5th century and possibly beyond.
