Episode T6 – Philometor

Synopsis: With Syria beset by regional enemies, three kings face off at the Battle of the Oenoparos River.  The lone survivor, King Demetrius II, inaugurates his reign with the violent destruction of Antioch.

“And the king of Egypt gathered together a great host, like the sand that lieth upon the sea shore, and many ships, and went about through deceit to get Alexander’s kingdom, and join it to his own…Wherefore he took his daughter from him, and gave her to Demetrius, and forsook Alexander, so that their hatred was openly known. Then Ptolemy entered into Antioch, where he set two crowns upon his head, the crown of Asia, and of Egypt.” – 1 Maccabees, Chapter 11

  1. Your podcast is fantastic. I'm 3 times through the whole lot. One note, there seems to be a missing link to the Asherbonipal pic on feedburner. I like having his company while listening.

  2. Thanks! I'm not officially affiliated with any other shows, and it depends on what eras/regions you're interested in. But in broad terms of style & content, you might enjoy "The History of Rome," "The History of England" or "Wonders of the World". Take care!

  3. Hi, and welcome! I'm sorry, you're right – the updated Blogger site doesn't have a convenient RSS feed link. You likely have to go through services, apps or websites like iTunes, Stitcher, or podbay.com. Good luck, and I hope you enjoy the podcast!
